Band of Horses 

When: Fri., April 17, 8 p.m. 2009
Price: $29.50

Since opening in February, the Fox Theater has raised Oakland's entertainment profile considerably. With Green Day playing a show there earlier this week, now a slew of noteworthy indie bands on the Sub Pop roster are coming through town, including Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, and the Helio Sequence -- the first two this week. Of those three acts, South Carolina's Band of Horses is the guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Its excellent 2007 release, Cease to Begin -- full of chiming, reverb-heavy, Southern-leaning drama -- isn't as pastoral or sacred-sounding as Fleet Foxes, and less raucous than the Portland duo. But you can still count on plenty of transcendent moments. On Friday, Apr. 17 at the Fox Theater (1807 Telegraph Ave., Oakland). 8 p.m., $29.50. TheFoxOakland.com
