Woodruffs Bar / March 31
Lightning Love knows the right way to walk a thin line. Kicking out pop-y gems with straight-forward lyrics that are piercing and relatable, paired with minimalist musicianship that’s smart, disciplined and crafty, this trio hits the bulls-eye of the indie dream — music that’s equal parts catchy, unique, dreamy and brilliant. I guess it boils down to them being a smart bunch, perpetually engaging us through masterful coming-to-age melancholy tunes that are refreshingly candid — and that believability is what sets them apart. $5. 9pm. 36 E. Cross St., Ypsilanti. www.woodruffsbar.com
