With Vivian Girls—the group whose eponymous 2008 album helped lead Brooklyn to the beach two years before Best Coast, and to girl pop three years before Cults—Frankie Rose played both bass and drums and contributed occasional vocals. With Crystal Stilts and Dum Dum Girls, she focused on percussion, and with Frankie Rose and the Outs, she finally tried her hand as bandleader. Tonight, she plays the Knitting Factory as a solo artist celebrating her new record, Interstellar, a change in direction that trades surfboards for spaceships.
