What to Do Tonight: Amazing Baby

You have every reason to hate Brooklyn-based hipsters Amazing Baby. They’ve got the tousled style of a thousand indie bands before them. Their music meshes dance-floor euphoria with garage-rock psychedelia. Plus, they’re Brooklyn-based hipsters. But on its debut album, Rewild, the quintet manages to pull a few hooks out of all the detached sounds buzzing around it. Like many of their contemporaries, Amazing Baby pack more method than meaning into their songs, grooving along complacently till something breaks up their stupor. But some cuts — like the sunny “Headdress” and the stomping “Pump Yr Breaks” — come close to living up to all the hype the band has generated over the past eight months. Three years from now, you’ll probably listen to Rewild as much as you listen to Cold War Kids these days. But for a little part of 2009, they mattered. So catch them while you can at the Beachland Tavern (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124, beachlandballroom.com) at 9 p.m. with the Entrance Band and Safari opening. Tickets: $10. —Michael Gallucci
