Another night of nostalgia at the Greek. In fairness, every time British post-punk band The Psychedelic Furs tours, they put together an excellent package. Previous tour-mates in recent years have included the Happy Mondays and the Lemonheads. And sure, everyone wants to sing along to “Pretty in Pink” and “Love My Way.” But James is the really interesting element here. The Manchester indie rock band has a string of hits in the ’90s, and all of them stand up to the test of time: “Sit Down,” “Come Home,” “She’s a Star,” and of course, “Laid.” They’re a bit chirpier than the headliners but still, two wonderful bands. Dear Boy also play.

The Psychedelic Furs play with James and Dear Boy at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 7 at the Greek Theatre.
