Who: Lo-fi French-swing revivers Les Chauds Lapins—headed up by Kurt Hoffman and Meg Reichardt—have been kicking around Brooklyn for a few years, regulars at Barbès and the Ukefest, and are getting a heightened profile with Amourettes, due March 22nd on Barbès Records. They’re neither French nor born in the early 1900s, but they fake both really well (and their name, The Hot Rabbits, is French slang for "being oversexed"). Their album release show happens at 92YTribeca on March 25.
