The Brooklyn-based trio MEN already have quite the indie pedigree, with Le Tigre's JD Samson fronting the performance art collective, and Ladybug Transistor's Michael O'Neill and Ginger Brooks Takahashi fleshing out the group's vibrant live sound. Their high-energy shows are stylish, enlightened productions meant to get the audience to confront serious societal issues while they dance their asses off. Samson preaches LGBT acceptance and women's rights, all atop processed guitars and bouncy keyboard riffs intended to hook you with the rhythm while you comprehend their compelling message. It should be a dynamic show filled with distinct sights and sounds that you (sadly) won't find elsewhere in the music industry. 18+. (Photo by Cass Bird)
