Three years have passed since the world has heard so much as a peep from London's sexiest and trashiest rock 'n' roll duo the KILLS. When they were fresh out of the gate, Florida punk expatriate singer Alison Mosshart (aka VV) and British drummer, guitarist and vocalist Hotel (Jamie Hince) wielded a dirty wash of noisy and heroin-chic minimalism that sullied infectious rock 'n' roll hooks with grit and fuzz. The duo's sound still resonates with the power of the dark side, but its third full-length, Midnight Boom, finds the gruesome twosome adding a pop color to its stark, stylish strut. Dax Riggs and Magic Wand open the Wed., MAY 28, show. $12. 9 p.m. The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Road. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
