The Boston Globe


Critics’ picks: Pop music

THE ZOMBIES There’s no shortage of 1960s pop bands in Boston lately, from the Rascals’ recent run at the Opera House to the Monkees’ upcoming show at Citi Wang Theatre (July 16). Now come the reunited Zombies, one of the greatest rock bands of that era, with original members Colin Blunstone and Rod Argent at the helm. (Online tickets are sold out, so call the venue to purchase them.) July 7, 7:30 p.m. Tickets: $45-$55. Regent Theatre,
Arlington. 781-646-4849,

BELLE & SEBASTIAN With no new album to promote, this beloved Scottish indie-pop band (pictured) should have free reign to survey its catalog, from its 1996 debut, “Tigermilk,” to 2010’s “Belle and Sebastian Write About Love.” Yo La Tengo opens. July 9, 8 p.m. Tickets: $30-$45. Bank of America Pavilion. 800-745-3000,
