Musician Fred Mascherino's more famous band, Taking Back Sunday, evinces plenty of sensitivity. That is the root of romantic angst, after all. But with his side project, the Color Fred, Mascherino gets to do more of a stripped-down-troubadour thing than a screaming emo one. The less abrasive love-gone-wrong songs should blend well tonight with the similar themes performed by sister act Meg and Dia at The Granada (1020 Massachusetts in Lawrence, 785-842-1390). Tickets cost $12.
