For somebody with a pet rabbit named Fluffy, Kate Nash sounds a little bit ticked off on her new album, “My Best Friend Is You.” She's 22 now, and maybe she's learned a few things since “Made of Bricks” made her everybody's darling in 2007, but there's as much snarl as coo in the girl-group stylings of her new disc. Producer Bernard Butler (Suede) has helped her cover all the bases: love, guilt, betrayal … and waterfowl. Because if there's one thing she wants you to know, it's “I Hate Seagulls.” Nash's nine-date North American tour closes tonight at the sold-out El Rey Theatre.
Elsewhere: Del the Funky Homosapien, joined by Aceyalone, brings it at the Roxy. … British electro experiementalists Fuck Buttons play the Troubadour. … And if your musical diet is lacking in kazoo (and whose isn't?), Roger Clyne and his Peacemakers bandmate P.H. Naffah hold forth at the Mint.
Also: The Hundred Days at the Viper Room; the New Limb at El Cid; Knee High at the Silverlake Lounge; Nina Storey at the Hotel Cafe; Cue the Moon and Wet & Reckless at Spaceland; the Nerdist at Largo; and Roger Steffens' “Life of Bob Marley” at the Grammy Museum.
