Critic's Pick Release Date: 2009-07-01

Song titles “Welcome to the Party to Save the World!” “Stop Acting Like You Know More About the Internet Café Than Me,” and most especially “How to Get to the Moon and Back on Half a Tank of Gas (As Told by the Great Racecar Driver From Outer Space)” should indicate what you’re in for here. Musicians Stefan Pruett, Mike McHale, and Michael Kraft — appropriately based out of Carefree, Arizona — deliver vocals in disinterested and permanently sarcastic-sounding voices, backed by synthesizers and drum machines (not to mention the requisite keytar), and the songs are as fluffy and unfocused as their names foretell. The attitude behind tunes such as “Jeremiah, Stop Taking Bukowski So Seriously” is hard to hate, though, and few bands since the indie dance boom are using their fancy electronics for such lo-fi effects. If you’re looking for music to semi-ironically frolic to, the White Rabbit will be your spot Sunday. Just make sure you prance the hell back out before all those hardcore bands return. $10, 6pm Sun, Jul 5, the White Rabbit, 2410 N St. Marys, sawhiterabbit.com
