5-30: White Rabbits at the Grog Shop

Posted By on Thu, May 28, 2009 at 10:00 AM

e1fb/1242851591-white-rabbits.jpgWhite Rabbits toured with Spoon. Spoon’s Britt Daniel produced their new album. They even sound like Spoon. And please stop complaining about the dearth of percussion-driven indie-rock — White Rabbits have two drummers! The Brooklyn band is touring behind its just-released second album, It’s Frightening. In fact, tonight’s show at the Grog Shop is only the second stop. All of the group’s new songs boast a spacious soundscape of jittery drumming, piercing guitar and edgy voices. “Percussion Gun” hurtles forward with tribal throbbing reminiscent of Man Man, complete with rumbling bass and the echoed reverberation of electric guitar. “Company I Keep” takes a more laid-back approach, with a slow shuffling beat and scratching-but-gentle crooning by Stephen Patterson. The six-member band will play material from both It’s Frightening and its 2007 debut, Fort Nightly. It’s probably your last chance to see them before they hit the big time. Fellow Brooklynites the Subjects open the show, along with Cleveland’s Mother Country Madmen and the Hot Rails, at 9 p.m. at the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Heights Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216.321.5588). Tickets: $10. — Danielle Sills
