The Fatal Flaw are a new pop-punk combo comprising recently transplanted bassist and singer Joel Reader (Mr. T Experience, the Avengers), guitarist Zack Wells (the Information), drummer Jason Seaver (the Vershok), and guitarist Matt Goldman (Steel Train). Local girlfriends who specialize in harshing all over their boyfriends’ respective rock bands might not appreciate the familiar bro-before-ho moral at the heart of their stunning new “The Great Indoors” — that settling down equals giving up, and that girls just don’t get it — but that shouldn’t stop them from eating up the song’s sugar-sweet pop-rock choppage. Catch the Flaw live at the Middle East upstairs on November 15 as they release their debut, We Are What We Pretend To Be (Lunch Records), and inspire a whole new generation of young people to be passive-aggressive dicks to their significant others. And get there early for the Lie Society, Harris, and Taxpayer. In the meantime, show your iPod who wears the tight pants in your house by grabbing “The Great Indoors."
