Joy Formidable, Fang Island

When: Wed., Sept. 28, 9 p.m. 2011

If it turns out that The Joy Formidable's name was coined to describe guitarist/ frontwoman Ritzy Bryan, it would come as no surprise. On the group's larger-than-life debut (aptly titled The Big Roar), she sings with a passion that's contagious and an awe that's matched only by the unfettered ferocity of her guitar-hero pyrotechnics. They're only a trio, but The Joy Formidable's take on shoegazing Britpop is the stuff of skyscraper-sized Marshall stacks and stadium-sized arenas. Fang Island opens. —David Raposa
