Local Natives / 9:45pm / Friday

This LA quintet looks like a J. Crew college rock ad campaign playing ever-annoying, front-of-stage auxiliary drum rigs. Though it's generally a good rule of thumb among musicians, this time don't judge the band by its look. Local Natives' animal-inspired pair of records — Gorilla Manor and Hummingbird — is the criterion for indie rock arrangement. Over long, melodic tom riffs, the band nails enviable three-part harmonies, singing of romantic duress and the daily life of "cold cereal and TV."
