Lead singer Ian Astbury's blood curdling wail may not quite hit the high notes it did in The Cult's prime time of the '80s. But his voice remains unmistakable and ably keeps up with guitarist Billy Duffy, who still reaches all known and unknown notes and riffs on the six strings. The band's last album, 2007's Born into This, was a worthy effort harking back to the heady days of alterna club and radio faves "Wild Flower" and "Fire Woman." The Living Things opens. 16 and up. $30-$35. 8 p.m. Amos' Southend, 1423 S. Tryon St. 704-377-6874. www.amossouthend.com.
