Provided that New Zealand’s Naked and Famous don’t beat them to it, these snazzy-scruffy L.A. dudes stand a reasonable chance of becoming the new MGMT. Pumped Up Kicks, Foster the People’s debut single, is a cooled-out synth-rock trifle about kids with time to pretend. Their full-length doesn’t street until May 24, but that didn’t prevent this show from selling out in advance. With Grouplove and We Barbarians.
