Along with Tom Verlaine, Richard Lloyd founded the band Television and fired one of the first salvos for post-punk. Their structured, clean two-guitar attack first appeared on the high-watermark album “Marquee Moon” in 1977 and inspired legions of New Wave players to follow. Lloyd’s first new music in five years appears next month on a 7-inch vinyl single. Grand Strand and Cold Blue Kid open at 8 p.m. June 15 at Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee. Tickets: $10-$30.
