The Men, a four-piece, post-punk outfit from Brooklyn, have attracted a steady following since their critically acclaimed “We Are the Men” and “Immaculada.” Fans crowded into living rooms and tiny clubs to hear the band’s signature music, which pulls in bits of fuzz rock, metal and shoe gaze. With the group’s most recent release, “Leave Home,” critics claim that the band is breathing new life into the hardcore genre. The buzz surrounding the album was so fervent that the first single, “Bataille,” was released a full six months before the record was scheduled to come out. Followers of bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Dinosaur Jr. and Hüsker Dü will feel right at home when the Men perform at Strange Matter on Thursday, March 8, at 7 p.m. $7. 447-4763.

    • Dang - why is Mr Burns not mentioned here? Perhaps because I'm an idiot. Sorry…
