TV on the Radio at the National

Despite landing on practically every magazine cover and nearly every critic's best-of-the-year list, Brooklyn's TV on the Radio still doesn't get much play on many FM stations. Not like it needs the help. With its sleek falsettos, echoing drums and a hint of electronica, this quintet has collaborated with the likes of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and glam legend David Bowie. Progressively polishing its ear-friendly tunes, the band's most recent release, “Dear Science,” centers on dance and ditches previous complex arrangements for straightforward tunes that get your feet moving. Catch the band at the National on Wednesday, June 10, at 8 p.m. $20. 612-1900 or www.thenationalva.com— Veronica Garabelli
