As if you haven’t heard of them, the Killers are an American rock band that mixes Britpop sensibilities with the lo-fi fuzz of early aughts indie rock. Their first album, Hot Fuss, made enough of it to launch them to success—“Somebody Told Me” still makes for a popular karaoke pick. On their latest album, Battle Born, Brandon Flowers trades out his New Wave digs for some meaningful crooning and heartland rock. Catch them with Canadian indie pop twins Tegan and Sara opening.
