Cymbals Eat Guitars with Brand New and Foxing
Fri. Oct. 17 | This ill-fitting triple bill pits Brooklyn-via-New Jersey rockers Cymbals Eat Guitars — whose new album, Lose (Barsuk), ranks among its (and the year's) best — in between mushy chamber-yelpers Foxing and grating emo-barkers Brand New. At 9 p.m. at Civic Theatre.
