Ladyhawk @ the Hi-Dive

[photopress:ladyhawk.jpg,full,pp_image] Ladyhawk's '70s rock-indebted sound flattened a half-full Hi-Dive last night. Photo from MySpace. If I had known Vampire Hands were opening for Ladyhawk at the Hi-Dive last night -- and I probably should have, considering I was reviewing the show (think, McFly, think!) -- I would have arrived earlier.

Liars @ the Marquis Theater

[photopress:liars_post04.jpg,full,pp_image] A couple weeks ago, indie music websites were abuzz with the news that Liars frontman Angus Andrew seriously jacked up his back -- though the good news was it wouldn't affect the band's tour.

Interpol @ the Fillmore Auditorium

The band continues to crank out respectable, darkly-melodic post-punk, but its lack of stylistic variance rivals its same-y NYC brethern the Strokes from album to album.
