Miniature Tigers, Lilac Shadows, Grapes 

When: Sun., Sept. 11, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12

Rolling Stone once called Miniature Tigers one of the "25 best bands on MySpace." Obviously, this was years ago, but the Brooklyn project still delivers what it did in 2006: light, catchy pop rock. Bleepy-bloopy synth-dance elements drive behind conversational washes of vocal harmony, and there's just enough guitar to keep the music grounded in the rock world. Don't take this the wrong way, but it's kind of like Vampire Weekend. Sharing the bill are local bands Lilac Shadows and The Grapes, the latter offering purposefully careless, punch line-oriented tunes such as "Caroline Smith is Fucking Insane" and "The Bugs Are Alright" (think The Moldy Peaches minus tape hiss). —Corbie Hill
