Dan Smith brings his buzzing British pop act Bastille to a sold out gig at Riviera Theatre, March 31, 2014.

British synthpop act Bastille pumped up the melodrama on its 2013 debut, Bad Blood, updating the New Romantic polish of the 1980s for the EDM generation. The group's upcoming LP, Wild World, ditches some of the throwback sheen in favor of more straightforward, guitar-driven alt-rock (though singer Dan Smith still retains well-coiffed look). Bastille's appearance at the Vic is an official Lollapalooza aftershow.
