Northside Festival. This marathon bill's highlights include locals Darlings, who are stepping into their name and becoming something of an It band on the scene. (It must be the group's short, catchy and ultralistenable guitar jams about just-out-of-college subjects like girls, getting evicted, partying and TV.) Before Darlings are young Australians the Grates, with a vocals-guitar-drums format that mirrors Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and arty Brooklyn trio Dinosaur Feathers, which nods to Animal Collective and Dirty Projectors.
