Hailing from Brighton, England, post-Britpop trio Fear of Men sounds sweet. Interpret the preceding adjective as you like, because the band’s output is both pleasant and sugary without crossing over into saccharine territory. On tour in support of their debut full-length, Loom, Fear of Men visits Sister (407 Central NW) on Sunday, May 11. NYC indie-pop darling The Pains of Being Pure at Heart is the official headliner, but arriving early enough to catch the opening acts is advisable. This 21-plus concert kicks off at 9pm, and tickets are only $8. For a hipster-household name and an up-and-comer from across the pond—whose Loom was recently described in our pages as “a new Cranberries album with an invigorated Robert Smith guesting on jangly guitar and Moby in the producer’s chair”—that’s an exceptionally reasonable admission price. So fight future regret by attending this surprisingly uplifting fear and pain-themed show.
