Touring on a tight budget is tough enough for most do-it-yourself bands, but in the span of just a few short years Naples, Fla.-based punk rockers Fake Problems have had their equipment stolen, their trailer catch on fire and a wild turkey fly into their car windshield while driving, causing massive damage. Managing to recoup their financial losses, the band of childhood buds can find solace in having become an up-and-coming name among the likes of Against Me! and Gaslight Anthem, delivering manic, clean hooks, whoa-o harmonies, and backing brass. On the road behind the recent release of their latest, “Real Ghosts Caught on Tape,” Fake Problems appropriately open for Gaslight Anthem at the National on Monday, Sept. 27, at 6 p.m. $18-$21.
