Bleachers

Jack Antonoff (aka the boyfriend of Lena Dunham) should quit his day job. His solo act under the name Bleachers easily eclipses his work as the guitarist in prom-ballad pop act Fun. Bright hooks illuminate dark autobiographical material in songs that gleam and hop like '80s radio. "Rollercoaster" is a more bittersweet Killers, "I Wanna Get Better" balances mental health and a huge chorus like Passion Pit, and influences from glorious pangenerational outsiders like Grimes and Yoko Ono pop up throughout debut LP Strange Desire. His exuberance gets a crowd hopping, as does the odd Cranberries cover he may throw in. Bear witness to the top-qual tunage at Santa Ana's Observatory. Fellow buzzy band Night Terrors of 1927—comprised of Jarrod Gorbel of the Honorary Title and Blake Sennett of Rilo Kiley—will open; expect their infectious radio-friendly hit, "When You Were Mine."
