Woodruff’s / November 12

This Ann Arbor outfit has seen its fair share of lineup changes, but the one constant, Caleb Dillon, keeps the band of indie-rockers alive and kicking! They will be playing a killer show a short drive away at Woodruff’s in Ypsilanti, so if you’ve never been, it would be the perfect show to catch. With superior harmonies, their power-pop tunes are both fun and sentimental. Listen to Camp-Fire of their highly touted 2008 album Clouded Staircase and see why it was the track chosen for the official 2010 Ann Arbor Film Festival video promo. Watch the cool making of that video spot on Starling Electric’s Facebook page. 9pm. $5. 36 E. Cross St., Ypsilanti. www.woodruffsbar.com
