3. BRINGING DOWN THE HOUSE


English alternative rock band The House of Love will perform in Israel this week. Formed in 1986, the band rose to prominence in the UK as a leading indie rock band in 1988. It is best known for its detailed psychedelic guitar sound and the successful singles “Shine On,” “Christine” and “Destroy the Heart.” However, the band broke up in 1993 and its members went on to independent projects. In 2003, the band’s main songwriters, soloist Guy Chadwick and leading guitarist Terry Bickers, decided to reconstitute the group, which has been working ever since.

Wednesday, 10 p.m., Zappa Herzliya. For tickets: www.zappa-club.co.il

They are known for their Hebrew interpretation of American country music. Jane Bordeaux was the most frequently played band of 2015 on Galgalatz, Israel’s most popular radio station.

Fans can look forward to hearing such hits as “Space Oddity,” “Under Pressure,” “Life on Mars,” “Fame,” “Young Americans,” “China Girl” and “Rebel Rebel.”
