This week's concerts: Last splashes, first blushes

Any Pixies fan still smarting over the abrupt departure of founding bassist Kim Deal from the band this summer can express their disappointment with her in person 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, at Grand Central in Miami. Or they can just shut up and enjoy the Breeders, the post-Pixies act Deal formed with her twin sister, Kelley, in 1990. The group is touring to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its second album, "Last Splash." You know it as the one with "Cannonball." Tickets cost $30. Go to

Another rock 'n' roll survivor, albeit one whose fans throw their devil horns in the air without irony, Glenn Danzig will toast a quarter-century of hells-a-poppin' punk-metal with his self-named band 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, at Revolution Live. Tickets cost $33. Go to Now, say it with me: "Mother!"

Something slightly more satanic will be taking place at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, when the ABBA tribute band Bjorn Again appears 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10. Did I say, "satanic"? I meant, "Swedish." Tickets cost $37.50-$51.50. Go to

The week's other notable concerts include Icelandic art-rock band Sigur Ros 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9, at Bayfront Park in Miami; British soul-pop singer Emeli Sande 8:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 11, at the Fillmore Miami Beach; and Brooklyn-based rapper Kid Cudi 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 8, at AmericanAirlines Arena.
