Critical Hit, Yeah Great Fine, Decades, Gallons 

When: Thu., May 10, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $6
The first time I saw Yeah Great Fine play, the band soundchecked with the first 20 seconds of the "Green Hill Zone" theme from Sonic the Hedgehog, and not at all in a kitschy way. I know from personal experience how sizable an undertaking learning how to play videogame music on a musical instrument is, and their note-for-note mastery of the 16-bit hit is testament to their technical virtuosity and dweeb roots. Yeah Great Fine make math rock loose, quirky, and relatable, which is a remarkable achievement considering how much of the genre is purely emotionless masturbation. MORGAN TROPER
