When: April 20

Where: Showbox SoDo

What Michael Alan Golberg had to say of the band's Showbox gig last September:

"But when the six were together and rocking through the groove-heavy, New Wave-ish material found on Rilo's new Under the Blacklight ("Shake Your Moneymaker," "Silver Lining," "Dreamworld") — or digging into the country-dusted indie-pop of older recordings ("It's a Hit," "Paint's Peeling," "Wires and Waves") — to say they were an incredibly tight, super-pro outfit is an extreme understatement. Aided by two utility players handling guitar, percussion, keyboards, and vocals, the band thickened its arrangements without sacrificing spirit or intimacy. On more than one occasion, Lewis hopped off the stage and crooned in the midst of fans grinning, singing along, and clutching at her (and handing her flowers); Sennett, meanwhile, hammed it up with the rest of the band, climbing on the drum riser, kneeling in front of his amp, and engaging in playful guitar "duels" (a couple of times, he cozied up to Rilo's backup female guitarist in a way that transmitted much more heat than any of his physical interactions with Lewis)."
