Asheville's Black Rabbits Play a Spate of South Florida Shows
The coed group boasts a slightly roughed up, power pop sound, but not an overproduced one. Rather, the band traces its lineage directly back to great '60s U.K. groups like the Animals and the Turtles, as well as much later American groups like the Pixies and even Nirvana. That, err, grungier stuff is more or less confined to frontman Jetson Black's slightly snarling vocals. The rest of the time, there's a feel-good, timeless bounce to the songs that should appeal to Boomer parents as much as twentysomethings in Converse. After all, this is a band that also unabashedly name-checks the Monkees, an influence that can be heard in the bouncy build-ups of songs like "Hurry, Hurry."
The band played Churchill's last night, and from tonight and throughout next weekend visits several staple venues throughout South Florida. Hit the jump to get all the show details.
