The Secret History swaggers and shouts triumphantly through the trenches of Michael Grace Jr.’s lifelong war against silence. Live, watch as singer Lisa Ronson’s gravitas focuses the band’s tunes into bona fide anthems. If Portland, OR, quartet the Prids lived in NYC, they'd be huge on the scene. But their brand of post–Joy Division pop might be susceptible to our town's taste for fashion over substance, a dynamic that the Prids get right, for the most part. A band to watch for the black-shirt-and-tie set.
