Hausu, Broncho, Bleached, The Men

When: Thu., Sept. 5, 9 p.m. 2013

Amazingly, the Men's official website is the first hit in a Google search of "the men." That probably wasn't the case back in the early days of the Brooklyn band's existence, when they were releasing noisy cassettes of grimy punk and post-hardcore. But the one-two punch of Leave Home and Open Your Heart heightened the group's profile, infusing their racket with strands of krautrock, country, and surf. They got a little twangier on this year's New Moon, dropping some of the caterwauling in favor of something more akin to classic rock, but there are plenty of gritty-sounding cues to let you know that this is still the band that was once too underground for Google.
