Whoever said that college was a hazy memory putting a lifelong dent in their wallet should be extra jealous of The Temper Trap, a foursome who met at Wesley College in Australia and became a worldwide sensation. This alternative rock foursome has been on the move since their debut album, Conditions, released in 2009. Commercially successful due to their catchy, elevated vocals and empowering percussion, The Temper Trap is more than that cover band you cheered on at your college bars. Catch them at Terminal 5 on Oct. 1. Tickets are $30. 8 p.m.
