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.

Cross St., Ypsilanti. www.woodruffsbar.com
