Harmony is something that is often forgone in favor of dissonance and heaviness in modern music. It’s nice to see that The Dears recognize the power of harmonized male and female vocals. However, what’s greater than hearing this band play for themselves and fans is hearing them play for a good cause. On Nov. 3 and 4 The Dears will be doing two shows at The Knitting Factory in Williamsburg. All the merchandise proceeds will go to charity. Doors 8 p.m. $15 dollars general admission. All ages.
