Hanni El Khatib w/Bass Drum of DeathSinger-Songwriter
One of the things that makes the garage-rock revival so universally appealing is its democratic nature: Attitude and showmanship can all but make up for ratty gear or an outright lack of skill. L.A.’s Hanni El Khatib shows that pluralism also extends to those who are a little more polished. El Khatib recorded his sophomore release, Head in the Dirt, with Dan Auerbach in Nashville, availing himself of the high-fidelity grit that marks The Black Keys’ most recent work, but without sanding off any of the sharp edges that made his 2011 debut stand out. Oxford, Miss., duo Bass Drum of Death comes across a little closer to the genre’s bang-it-out roots, sounding kind of like a mixtape of all your favorite garage ancestors. Locals Bad Cop round out the bill.
