Road trip tip: Haken, Sunday, The Sinclair, Cambridge, Mass.
The Sinclair, 52 Church St., Cambridge, Mass.
The London band Haken have landed at that delicious intersection where calculus rock — yes, the next and more arcane step beyond mere "math rock" — joins with hooky, neo-pop melodies and harmonies. These dudes don't tour the States that often and, as such, a short, 80-minute drive to Mass. might be well worth your time to see them — particularly as they tour behind their new and surprisingly accessible but dazzlingly choppy "Vector" album. Leprous and Bent Knee are also on the bill. Showtime is 7 p.m. for this all-ages shop. Tickets are $30. Call (617) 547-5200.
