The Psychedelic Furs hit the House of Blues on October 26.

The Psychedelic Furs Lionel Richie and The Flaming Lips might be the only LIB acts whose music predates 1990, but if you’re looking to go retro there are far worse choices than singing “Pretty in Pink” and “Love My Way” with Richard Butler. Bonus: Fellow alterna-rock throwbacks The Lemonheads open. October 26, 8 p.m., $30, House of Blues.

Café Tacvba There are two milestones worth celebrating at this Brooklyn Bowl show: the pioneering rock en Espanol act’s 25 years of existence and the 20th anniversary of its landmark, genre-amalgamating album, Re, which will be played in its entirety. October 29, 9 p.m., $43-$50.
