Diiv might have released their debut, Oshin (pronounced “ocean”), two years after Williamsburg beach pop reached its sunburned peak, but the record deserves mention alongside that summer’s best. Today, the band warms January with a pair of Brooklyn Bowl shows: First, in the afternoon, they kick off the venue’s Kidrockers series, performing their sounds in a way that is, says the press release, “both authentic and kid-friendly,” before returning at 9 to play for another set for the borough’s many kids at heart. It’s not Rockaway Beach, but it’s the closest thing you’ll get until June.
