The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Surfer Blood, Hooray for Earth 

When: Tue., June 15, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $12–$14

"Don't check me out," offers The Pains of Being Pure at Heart's Kip Berman on the band's breakthrough single, "Young Adult Friction." Given the sort of charming frenzy the band supplies behind him, though, it's hard to take his advice. The Pains proudly wear their twee pedigree on their sleeve, but like the groups whose lead they follow—The Field Mice and Heavenly, among others—their softer side belies the powerful punch their tunes pack. Florida's Surfer Blood carries a slightly bigger stick—their breakthrough single, "Swim," sounds like the good Weezer trying to rewrite "More Than a Feeling"—but their penchant for modest melodic grandeur makes them a perfect complement. With Hooray for Earth. —David Raposa
