Fake Problems Play Early Show Tonight at Mercury Lounge

June 13th, 2013

Originally Fake Problems was going to be singer-guitarist Chris Farren’s solo project. But he ultimately teamed up with guitarist Casey Lee, bassist Derek Perry and drummer Sean Stevenson to make three critically acclaimed country-, punk- and folk-tinged full-lengths: How Far Our Bodies Go, out in 2007, It’s Great to Be Alive, released two years later, and 2010’s Real Ghosts Caught on Tape (stream it below). Thanks to a near-constant touring schedule—and their high-energy stage presence—the Naples, Fla., four-piece have gained the reputation as a fun band not to miss when they come to your town. And fortunately for you, Fake Problems (above, doing “Soulless” for Fearless Music) come to our town to play the early show tonight at Mercury Lounge.
