With a gentle indie-folk pop sound, that has just the right amount of bite, Ann Arbor's Hush, Love, fronted by the simultaneously sweet and jaded voice of Lisa Ritchie, bridges heartache and hope. As Ritchie sings lines like, "I've seen old hearts led astray, I've seen love fade away," the rest of the band punches up the tracks, layering instruments and giving the melancholy lyrics a warm feel. These guys hit that sacred middle ground between heart-worn singer-songwriter introspection and intricate, yet catchy pop. $5. 9pm. Woodruffs, 36 E. Cross, Ypsilanti. www.woodruffsbar.com —SR
