Fake Problems, Gay Blades 

When: Sun., Oct. 24, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $8-10

Though they've struggled with a similarity to their Against Me! buddies up Interstate 75 in Gainesville, Fake Problems have always demonstrated a refreshing adventurousness, spicing their folk-punk with horns, strings and more hooks than Tom Gabel ever deigned to offer. Indeed, their main similarities were hard strummy chords and Chris Farren's hoarse punk growl. That changed on Real Ghosts Caught On Tape, where Farren discovered his singing voice, while the band mothballs the vigorous attack for anthemic indie pop whose spirit (much more than sound) resembled Gaslight Anthem. Confronting the pain of youthful self-discovery, its maturity, beauty and emotional ballast blow a hole in Small Black's trendy triviality. With Gay Blades. —Chris Parker
