Happily, then, Crowded House MK II is every bit as formidable as the bands initial incarnation. With guitarist Mark Hart back in the fold (he originally joined the trio in 1993) and new drummer Matt Sherrod, combined with founding members Finn and Seymour, the bands proving that, unlike the plunging worth of our real estate here in South Florida, some Houses, those that are Crowded in particular, can actually hold their value just look at the newly released and critically acclaimed album Intriguer. Crowded House performs at 8 p.m. Thursday at the Fillmore at the Jackie Gleason Theater (1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach). Tickets cost $37.50 and $47.50.
