LUCIUS, THE STATE ROOM, Friday, Feb. 14, 9 p.m., Sold out
If you're a fan of classic pop and female vocalists harmonizing in clever ways, find yourself a way to get some tickets to this sold-out Lucius show Friday night. I'm late to the party on this band, and am SO happy to finally be clued in. Co-founders and vocalists Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig sing in unison, creating a remarkable--hell, unforgettable--sound in the process. Backed by multi-instrumentalists Andrew Burri, Peter Lalish and Dan Molad, Lucius collectively makes evocative music that both transports the listener to a golden era of pop, and showcases a modern twist on the form at that same time, via percussion-heavy nuggets just perfect for Valentine's Day lovers out there. The band's debut album, Wildewoman, arrived in October, and is well worth checking out for inspiration, as is the band's NPR Tiny Desk Concert and KEXP performance. You Won't opens the show.
