The Summer Set/We Are the In Crowd/Go Radio/For the Foxes

When: Sun., March 10, 5:30 p.m. 2013

Girls in pop rock bands are rare these days. Female drummers are even scarcer. Enter The Summer Set. The Scottsdale, Arizona, quintet’s debut Love Like This hadn't been out a year before the band was recruited for a 2009 AP Tour and played sold out shows to fans who had yet to form opinions of them. The band’s cotton candy boy-meets-girl love songs are catchy and upbeat, filled with sing-along choruses and singer Brian Dales prepubescent vocals. While their sophomore album Everything’s Fine strayed slightly from pop with its easy-listening acoustics throughout, the forthcoming disc Legendary brings back the synthesizer. The single “Fuck U Over” is so sugary, you either don’t notice or don’t care that Dales is talking about a one-night stand. (Nikki Hunt)
