Boston’s Defeater take a markedly different approach to songwriting from the majority of their hardcore brethren. The entirety of the melodic hardcore band’s material, four albums and counting, centers on the struggles of a fictional New Jersey family in the post-WWII era. This is a concept band, influenced as much by the likes of Bad Religion and the Descendants as writers J.D. Salinger and Henry Miller. Defeater co-headline the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington on Thursday, February 11, with Caspian. O’Brother and CBRASNKE open.
Price: $15/17. AA
