Donning ’60s mod attire and dancing feverishly through every song, Brooklyn's much-buzzed Drums channel a heavy postpunk element, as heard on 2011's Portamento. Rounding out a sharp bill are Pearl and the Beard, a local trio offering sophisticated vocal harmonies and sweet, summery melodies; Avan Lava, a high-energy indie-pop crew whose act includes choreographed dance routines and trippy light shows; and Hess Is More, the brainy, offbeat pop vehicle of Danish musician Mikkel Hess.
