It’s not every day you see a new band hit the music scene with so much power that it’s impossible to ignore. While most local bands spend a lot of time finding their sound and style, the indie rockers of Dead Fame have come out with guns blazing, attracting enough attention to earn a spot on the RVA Music Fest lineup. The group, which has been playing Richmond only since early 2011, is reminiscent of bands such as the Cure, Bauhaus and New Order, and while the music can be dark at points, it features enough new wave and electronic shadings to keep it fun and entertaining. Dead Fame performs at Gallery5 on Saturday, Dec. 3, at 9 p.m. $5. 644-0005.
