On February 26, 2011, Brooklyn based band White Rabbits played a sold out show at Manhattan’s Bowery Ballroom. I knew very little about the group prior to seeing them live, but as I had read that Britt Daniel, the lead singer of Spoon, produced their 2009 album “It’s Frightening,” that was enough for me to try out a new experience. I am glad I went with my instincts as the show was awesome. After great sets from Cavemen and Arms, the six-piece indie rock band White Rabbits played for about an hour and a half, taking the stage just after 11 pm. More on Cavemen and Arms coming soon – stay tuned.
Lead singer Stephen Patterson played piano in addition to vocals and had a great stage presence. The songs White Rabbits played were all upbeat and the audience danced along all night long. Highlights for me were “The Salesman” and “Rudie Fails.” The band also previewed some new songs that will most likely be on the band’s new record. Spotted in the crowd was Britt Daniel of Spoon, whom I said hello to on my way through the audience. See a spy photo of Britt Daniel as well as the setlist after the jump.
I was fortunate enough to meet White Rabbits lead singer Stephen Patterson after the show and I congratulated him on a great set. He was very nice and also took a moment to pose for a photo. Thanks again Stephen!
