Bad Rabbits, George Tisdale Band (in Showroom)

When: Thu., March 7, 9 p.m. 2013

With squishy keyboards, low-grade rock guitar, elastic beats and anthemic soul vocals, Bad Rabbits turn up the post-R&B juicer on the funk-pop fruits of the '80s and '90s. Maybe it takes a band this racially and culturally diverse to forge a sound so translatable and so fluently American; more than half of the Boston-based Rabbits are first-generation immigrants from different continents, including Ghanaian frontman Dua Boakye. Durham neo-soul "divo" George Tisdale opens, with his dapper nerd chic and gender-bending vocal range. Tisdale's funky rhythm section is abetted by the marching-band moxie of tuba player Donald Parker III. —Sylvia Pfeiffenberger
