The Men at 1372 Overton Park 

Brooklyn indie-rock band the Men have been busy, releasing five full-length albums since forming in 2008. The most recent, New Moon, which came out last month, is a little bit mellower and hints more toward classic rock than the band's prior breakthroughs. If there's a "roots" bent here, it's more akin to Neil Young & Crazy Horse or the Meat Puppets than to the folkie vibe more common in indie circles now. You can hear this on the heavy stomp and searching guitar solos of the current single "I Saw Her Face" and jangly drive of "Half Angel Half Light." If this evolution from noise to tune is so common as to be almost inevitable, the Men are taking this path somewhere that feels honest and built to last. The Men will be joined by Ex-Cult and Organs at 1372 Overton Park on Monday, April 29th. Showtime is 9 p.m.
