New York noise purveyors the Men have stripped down their raucous sound to a degree over the past few years. Yet they've done so without losing the vociferous identity that first garnered them attention. The five-piece, now consisting of members Mark Perro, Nick Chiericozzi, Rich Samis, Ben Greenberg, and Kevin Faulkner, has recently struck a dynamic balance between its long-standing reckless abandon on stage and more poignant country-rock gems. The band's upcoming show at the Earl on Tues., May 28, also features two complementary local acts with garage stalwarts Turf War and hard-hitting rockers Small Reactions. Get there early.
