Drums, Surfer Blood, Young Friends

When: Mon., Sept. 13, 9 p.m. 2010

Hey, it's an indie rock band from Brooklyn taking their cues from '80s new wave and British post-punk. Whoa! But unlike some of their peers, The Drums mirror the feints and poses of these movements' more dramatic practitioners. On a blog-big tune like "I Felt Stupid," as well as on the bulk of their full-length debut, the unavoidable hooks are baited with a wounded romanticism that helps keep the sugar from causing any cavities. Sweetening this bill are two other buzzing bands that have a way with big tunes—Florida's larger-than-life Surfer Blood and Arizona's skittish popsters The Young Friends. —David Raposa

Price: $13-15
