Warpaint with Cate Le Bon

Warpaint went over like lead paint at two different South by Southwest gigs in Texas last week, but technical difficulties were partly to blame. The ambient Los Angeles rockers will have more time to get in shape headlining First Ave’s main room, a precursor to summer tour dates with Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds and festival gigs at Coachella and Redding. Like a more experimental and edgy Beach House — with a similarly soft but dramatic singer in Emily Kokale — the quartet just issued its eponymous second album for Rough Trade and is touring with darkly quirky Welsh tunesmith Cate Le Bon, who was mesmerizing in the Entry in January.
