Action Action 

With Jonezetta, We Are the Fury, Maxeen, and Arms for Venus. Thursday, December 14, at the Grog Shop.

With the Killers ditching their stylized dance rock for Springsteen bar shtick, thank goodness for Action Action, synthed-out gangbusters from New York who continue to bust classic post-punk grooves. Boasting veteran producer William Wittman (Cyndi Lauper, the Fixx), the group's sophomore effort, An Army of Shapes Between Wars, brazenly fuses luminous new-wave swirls and guitar-addled melodies, recalling the Cure, Depeche Mode, and even Nirvana. At the same time, such tracks as "Paper Cliché" and "The Other 90% of the Iceberg" reveal a group freeing itself from those very influences.
