Music: Local Natives 

Sat., May 1

On the surface, LOCAL NATIVES are the kind of perfectly dressed indie-rock quintet that cranks out the safest, post-Talking Heads brand of collegiate pop that a group can muster – it even offers a shaky cover of the Talking Heads' "Warning Sign." But the seemingly benign songs on its French Kiss debut, Gorilla Manor, are undeniably catchy and bound by intense arrangements, which add girth to the band's fey, artistic-guy-with-a-guitar approach. There are also three formidable vocalists in the band, elevating it above the bands to which it's often compared (Vampire Weekend, Arcade Fire). Brooklyn foursome and French Kiss labelmates Suckers open with their own chiming, jangling lo-fi pop concoctions. $12. 8:30 p.m. Masquerade, 695 North Ave. 404-577-8178. www.masq.com.
