The Academy Is..., Party Baby

When: Sun., Dec. 6, 8 p.m. 2015

Sure, Fall Out Boy tricked out The Get Up Kids’ emo-pop formula with bratty song titles and even brattier junior high lyrics. But there was something inexplicably immediate about the group’s big, propulsive pop-rock hooks. The same cannot be said for the bands that aped Fall Out Boy’s inexplicably powerful inanity, especially The Academy Is... The group’s feeble pop-rock is overglossed and made of emotional pyrite. But there’s always an emerging market for overproduced, overwrought teen anthems, one supposes. —Patrick Wall
