When did Local Natives' crowd get so bro-y? Squeezing past high heels and purple polos at a sold-out Tipitina's on Wednesday night felt a lot more like Tigerland than an indie rock show. Not to be a hater. Bros need good music too. It's worth taking this opportunity to consider what, exactly, is propelling Local Natives from Pitchfork-secret levels to The-O.C.-soundtrack territory.
