We Were Promised Jetpacks, The Twilight Sad

When: Tue., Nov. 18, 9 p.m. 2014

Scottish indie-rock bands that aren’t particularly cute or clever are of dubious use. The painfully earnest We Were Promised Jetpacks, for instance, lack archness. Though rightly praised for passionate live performance, their shows are often a case of unbound energy trying to lift flat songwriting. Their countrymen and labelmates The Twilight Sad are similarly drab, going for anthemic sweep but missing the singalong hooks, at least on their recent albums. This is a double feature for the middlebrow miserable. —Jeff Klingman

Price: $15-$17
