Saturday, March 20, at El Torreon.


As the only band on its Columbia bill not obsessed with figurines, Kilowatthours might face a tough, Barbie-brandishing crowd. Fortunately, its keyboard-covered compositions could charm even the Welcome to the Dollhouse bullies. This Louisville-and-Brooklyn-based band (its members swap songwriting ideas on the phone) is special in the good way, moving from its stark, piano-driven origins to an ethereal, electronically informed sound on its brand-new split release with the Rum Diary.
