You probably barely remember 1999, but if you wore a lot of flannel, then Built To Spill’s Keep It Like A Secret was probably on the radio for a lot of it. The Boise band has just one member from that album still in its lineup, but that isn’t stopping Built To Spill from celebrating the effort (the last piece from a sterling trio of long players from BTS) at this Ybor City gig where Doug Martsch brings Secret’s impeccable lyricism and lush arrangements to his loyal followers.

And yes, we’re talking about the “bee" album.

Built to Spill w/Prism/The Pauses. Fri. Oct. 11, 7 p.m. Sold out. Orpheum, Ybor City. eventbrite.com.
