The Cribs, White Rabbits, Takka Takka @ the Black Cat: 8.11.07

Sandwiched between a burgeoning NYC band, takka takka, and mediocre English rockers, The Cribs, White Rabbits delivered the best block of live music I've seen all summer. Polished and percussive, the Rabbits opened with "Kid on my Shoulders" without a hint of timidness. The rest of the set unfolded with the same amount of New York urgency and style. Sounding like The Walkmen on crack, the rhythm section (including special guests) made their presence felt, delivering a clean, powerful calypso rock beat going for the entire set. The band was tight and the vocals were strong all around, as the White Rabbits played several songs off their debut album along with two new songs and a Bob Dylan cover.

Listen to an unreleased song: "Sea of Rum" -Live- (5/5)
