The Safes/The Next New Nothings 

When: Mon., April 28, 9 p.m. 2014
Price: free
Pop punk has all been done before, but the Safes manage to bring a twist of originality to their particular brand of sound. These guys are from Chicago, and they’re out touring for their latest release (due out April 29). Infused with elements of surf and garage, their poppy, guitar-laden ballads are decidedly catchy. Songs like “Know It All” and “I Would Love To” feature sing-songy vocals smattered with keyboard and guitar riffs that would sound perfect for the ending of a coming-of-age film. Lyrics take on a more serious tone in the likes of “I Win” and “Hot Pursuit,” referencing revenge and the struggles of fitting in. Sassy sing and response vocals highlight these tracks as layers of guitar riffs underscore the mood. (Trenholme)
