The Naked & Famous, Surfer Blood, Viva Brother 

When: Sat., Sept. 3, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $9.47-10
Auckland, New Zealand's the Naked and Famous are responsible for "Young Blood," the finest, sparkliest, bubbliest party popper since Passion Pit's lead singer swallowed that first helium balloon. And since MGMT have readily proven that they can no longer be counted on for anything, the Naked and Famous are currently your best bet for crazily infectious, bottom-heavy, arena-sized pop. The band has already achieved a startlingly large amount of success—tonight's bargain-priced show is sold out—but get in if you can, since this kind of gratuitously enjoyable synth pop doesn't always retain the longest shelf life. You'll also get to see up-and-comers Viva Brother, plus what may be the final crest of Surfer Blood's initial rise before the dreaded sophomore slump. NED LANNAMANN
