Welsh new-wave band The Alarm formed as The Toilets in 1977, but it was a wise name change and the masterpiece Declaration, their 1984 debut album featuring single “Sixty Eight Guns,” that put them on the musical map. Commercially, it didn’t really get any better than that for main man Mike Peters, but The Alarm are still around and he continues to have his fun. In 2004, Peters successfully gate-crashed the British singles chart with a song credited to The Poppy Fields — in fact, Alarm recordings lip-synched by teen boys. Having proven beyond doubt that ageism is rampant in the music industry, Peters has gone back to touring with The Alarm, pulling a set list from a 40-year career. Also Wednesday, Aug. 16, at the Coach House and Thursday, Aug, 17, at the Canyon Club.
