Twenty One Pilots
“I’m running for my li-i-i-i-i-i-fe,” Twenty One Pilots frontman Tyler Joseph sings on “Chlorine,” the fifth single from the hip-hop- and reggae-informed alt-rockers’ latest record, “Trench.” And he sounds like it, desperation a recurring theme on this moody concept album in which the quest for peace of mind is an ongoing pursuit. See them at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the MGM Grand Garden. Tickets are $39.95 to $79.95; call 888-929-7849.
