The War on Drugs

The War on Drugs, White Rabbits 

When: Fri., March 9, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $12-14

Incorporating the lyrical folk tendencies of Bob Dylan, the spirited performances of Bruce Springsteen and the rollicking classic-rock everymanism of Tom Petty, Philadelphia quartet The War On Drugs is today's prime proponent of heartland rock 'n' roll. They take it for a 21st-century spin by adding layers of electronic textures to an already sprawling foundation of atmospheric guitars and skittering rhythms. While White Rabbits originated in the Midwest, the Brooklyn-via-Missouri sextet strays toward more urbane indie-rock circles. They've recently streamlined their kitchen-sink approach into a more modest one that retains the enthusiasm and ambition of the band's early work. (Note: This show is co-presented by Hopscotch Music Festival, owned by the Independent Weekly.) —Spencer Griffith
