Show Preview: Fear of Men @ Barracuda (7.23)

Fear of MenI’ve been anxiously awaiting this show for some time, knowing that the show we threw at SXSW with Fear of Men on the bill was just a slight tease…a musical appetizer if you will. They’ve recently released the stellar Fall Forever, building upon everything they exposed us to with Loom by adding extra layers and pushing those dreamy vocals. Pop fans have no other place to be but at Barracuda on Saturday night. The group will be joined by Puro Instinct and Typical Girls, so there’s even more reason to clamor for this evening. Grab tickets for $12 bucks right HERE.
