Vinyl Theatre, Machineheart (Back Room)

When: Wed., July 15, 7:30 p.m. 2015

The Fueled By Ramen label, home to radio-friendly unit shifters Paramore and fun., remains the holy grail for Warped Tour-leaning bands with serious commercial ambitions. It’s a fitting home for Milwaukee’s Vinyl Theatre, an act that grafts pop-punk propulsion onto ’80s-inspired synth-rock. The quartet’s candy-coated sound reflects its big-budget hopes but rings hollow, too. A heavily lacquered finish can’t fully mask these retread hooks. —Patrick Wall

Price: $10-$12
