DARWIN DEEZ, KILBY COURT, Friday, March 1, 7 p.m., $12
Darwin Deez is an endlessly creative cat, evolving from a guitarist in NYC band Creaky Boards, into a rapper, into an amalgam of hip indie-rock with more of an apparent sense of humor than most of his peers. For evidence of that, no need to look further than his new video for "You Can't Be My Girl," a solid tune from his brand new album Songs for Imaginative People, and it's a love/hate anthem that is really easy to love. The video is a satire of sorts of artsy Tumblr videos beloved by hipsters everywhere. Live, Darwin Deez is a spectacle in the best ways, bringing energy and that same sense of humor to the proceedings. You can find a lot worse ways to kick off the weekend. Caged Animals and Hang Time open the show.
