When: Sun., April 22 2012

Anglophiles nostalgic for Oasis-style Britpop — or, for that matter, Hacienda-era Happy Mondays — can find a latter-day approximation in Kasabian. The 2010 Brit Award winners, whose two most recent albums were recorded with Dan the Automator, borrowed their name from Charles Manson getaway driver Linda Kasabian because it sounded marginally better than their previous name, Saracuse. Trivia junkies will also be pleased to know that the word "kasab" is Armenian for "butcher" (prophetic!) and that the band's self-titled 2004 debut includes a song called "Butcher Blues." Catch Kasabian at the Summit (1902 Blake St., Denver, at 8 p.m. for $18 in advance, $20 at the door. — Bill Forman
