TV On The Radio
All summer, the Power & Light District has been giving us free concerts of bands we totally don’t want to see — sans a few of our favorite local bands that we’d rather catch in a district with better parking and fewer meatheads. Now they up and get TV On The Radio, which last played in Kansas City at the VooDoo Lounge. Who the hell is booking the hippest rock band in Brooklyn? The same guy who books Candlebox? The absence of cover charges and flair bartending this time around makes for a tempting Halloween excursion, especially considering that Dear Science is TV On The Radio’s best album yet. Toss in the glow-stick electropop of Shiny Toy Guns and the nonstop Detroit rock of the Dirtbombs and you’ve got plenty of reasons to trick-or-treat in the eye-candy district.
