The Bravery

When: Thu., March 13, 8 p.m. 2008

One of the more entertaining tangents of the hipster-approved, dance-rock trend of a few years back was the in-press sniping that went on between the Bravery and the Killers. But with the latter trading in New Order-inspired basslines for a serious Bruce Springsteen obsession, the Bravery ended up being the last one left to fly the new wave retro freak flag. While last year's The Sun and The Moon ended up drawing out critics' long knives, it's a rather fun listen that devolves into a game of "guess-who-the-Bravery-is-channeling." Not surprisingly, frontman Sam Endicott's nasally vocals echo with nuances of the Cure, the Clash, and Coldplay that ends up being a delight for the Brit-pop inclined. Thursday, March 13 at the Fillmore (1805 Geary Blvd., San Francisco).8 p.m., $22.50.
