The great state of Michigan has its fair share of talented young bands exploring the far reaches of Americana and incorporating the sounds of bluegrass, rhythm & blues, folk and even rock n' roll. Lindsay Lou and The Flatbellys are one of  the darlings of the bunch. First off, it is impossible to ignore the commanding presence of Lindsay Lou's vocals. Her voice is as sweet as molasses — soft and angelic or  spicy and sultry depending on the demands of the tune. Her songwriting captures the ol' timey tales of traditional bluegrass with the swing of contemporary hopefulness. And the Flatbellys are a solid complement who can finger pick, strum and bop with best of 'em. 8pm. $15. The Ark, 316 South Main St. 734-761-1818. www.theark.org
