The Front Bottoms, You Blew It!, It Looks Sad That's Why I Said It's You CL Recommends

When: Tue., Jan. 28 2014
Price: $10/$12

Juxtaposing brashness with vulnerability, the Front Bottoms embrace life’s journey like a cold splash of water in the face, while wondering where the fuck they’re going. Anchored by the clattery drumming of Mathew Uychich and the perky guitar melodies of Brian Sella, the New Jersey foursome crafts punky, spiky, nerd-core pop centered on Sella’s obsessive, self-effacing vocals which wind a discursive course into the eddies of his mind. This brainy, sweet-yet-snarky approach can turn dire and overly cute — witness the smeary lyrical smirk of the Barenaked Ladies. The Front Bottoms avoid that too-precious pitfall, funneling the sublime surrealism of They Might Be Giants into cringe-worthy yet emotionally true tales of flirting with disaster and encroaching maturity.
