Dear Science (Interscope), TVOTR's feverish, screw-it-let's-dance surrender to its inner Funkadelic devil, didn't play as well on Voodoo's 2008 main stage as it would've at a packed club. The Brooklyn band has provided New Orleans with several of its best rock shows in recent years, a trend it should reprise here. Sweden's Little Dragon opens. Tickets $25.
