    White Rabbits Play No-Nonsense Homecoming Gig

    White Rabbits aren't much for banter. To call the band workmanlike would probably be an overstatement — conjuring an image of a bluesier, simpler band than the sextet that took the stage last night at New York's Webster Hall — but their 16-song set was unassuming yet effective in a way that could almost be called transactional: Their fans paid for a good show, and that's what they got. One could even be forgiven for not realizing that this was a homecoming show for the Brooklyn band, who have been on the road since SXSW last month. The only clue: a profession of civic love at show's end. Maybe the band members are shy? Certainly they have stage presence, but White Rabbits are a studio band that just happens to have put in some work to make their music translate onstage.
