Kings of Leon and Local Natives


Moda Center (map) North
Thu., March 27, 7:30 p.m. 2014 All Ages

Rose Garden

You know, the face of mainstream rock could be a lot worse. Kings of Leon's discography certainly can't be accused of overflowing with classic albums, but the inevitable Greatest Hits is going to be a motherfucker. Yes, they'll have to put "Use Somebody" and the ridiculous "Sex on Fire" on there, but they'll probably also find room for "The Bucket" and the wonderfully jangly, breakneck "Happy Alone," too—not to mention the pretty-okay "Supersoaker" from their latest, the otherwise predictable Mechanical Bull. Perhaps they'll even find room for the original version of "California Waiting," from the long-lost Holy Roller Novocaine EP, perhaps the best thing these Southern boys have laid to tape. Put them all together, and that's a collection no one would toss off the jukebox. NED LANNAMANN
