LastNight: White Rabbits, Murder of Lilies at Cafe Du Nord

White Rabbits June 11, 2007, Café du Nord Better than: Little Baobab, and less sweaty. Download: “Kid on My Shoulders”

After impressive reviews of their debut album, Fort Nightly, White Rabbits, a Missouri-bred sextet, has already more-or-less leaped into Indie Rock Stardom (or Pitchfork notoriety, whatever that means). I admittedly went to the show with high hopes, anticipating one of those rare intimate performances fans reminisce about for way too long. But things didn't work out that way — tensions seemed high, morale seemed low, and only a handful of fans showed up for the evening.
