Thirteen years ago, four school friends just south of Manchester, England, got together to play music and The 1975 was born. Fronted by the enigmatic Matthew Healy, the alt-rock group lyrically combines notions of upheavals, triumphs, traumas and losses on its latest album, I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware of It, which reflects indie-pop influences. Known for its accessibility, the group maintains an emphatic following by emotional connectedness with its fans. Emo-pop outfit Wet opens.

Sunday 6/12. $42, 7pm. Sprint Pavilion, 700 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4910.
