Whether you’re in it for the angsty dance-off Mates of State compel live or are a true admirer of the complex pop songwriting that’s made fans “Like U Crazy” since the duo pushed listeners into 2000 with My Solo Project, this show’s one you won’t want to miss. It’s been four years since their last release, the critically heralded Mountaintops, but the husband-wife pair announced a new EP, You’re Going to Make It (due out in the U.S. on June 16 on Barsuk) and also dropped a greatest hits comp last week, Greats. All of this adds up to an undeniably upbeat outlook on what to expect from their show this week with gorgeous Sarasota folk-pop champs Good Graeff. This is what it’s like on an indie-pop fantasy, we suppose.

MATES OF STATE with Good Graeff 8 p.m. Friday, April 10 | The Social, 54 N. Orange Ave. | 407-246-1419 | thesocial.org | $13-$15
