Fun, Sleeper Agent

When: Sat., March 3, 9 p.m. 2012

There's nothing odd about the fact that Fun.'s single "We Are Young" was covered on Glee. They're a shiny, theatrical blend of fellow acts on the Fueled By Ramen label, combining the grandiosity of The Academy Is with Fall Out Boy's polished pop energy. This is what the Decemberists might sound like if they were transplanted into Jack's Mannequin. The music is generally well-crafted and lushly arranged, but the huge choral harmonies on the concept album Some Nights lead the band heedlessly past Queen into art-pop pretension. It's elegant, poppy and often quite rhythmically adventurous, but awfully rich and sugary. With Sleeper Agent. —Chris Parker
