Tonight! Frightened Rabbit, Deadbeat Darling, And N.E.R.D.
If you're hunting for confessional, ragged vocals and rousing anthems, then catch Scottish trio Frightened Rabbit (that's them above, frolicking with young'uns) at Webster Hall. Meanwhile, Deadbeat Darling headline MHOW for the first time, blending dub and electronica into something that apparently sounds like "zen-rock" (at least, according to Deli NYC's Meijin Bruttomesso). Finally, N.E.R.D. and their jock-ish stage antics take over Irving Plaza as they gear up for the release of their fourth album in June.
