When: Sun., April 7 2013
soul- and jazz-infused pop, 7 p.m.
Led by jazz singer Rachael Price, Boston’s Lake Street Dive is known for their smooth, rolling originals and funky cover choices, good stuff like Hall & Oates “Rich Girl,” George Michael’s “Faith,” and the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.” From their formation in 2004 until just last year, their efforts earned them a loyal following in New England. But things changed when the band finally decided to make Lake Street Drive their full-time pursuit. “Stuff immediately picked up really fast for us,” says bassist Bridget Kearney, formerly of Beantown-based newgrass outfit Joy Kills Sorrow. Since then, Lake Street Drive has toured with Josh Ritter and appeared on A Prairie Home Companion. “There’s been a real sense of momentum,” Kearney says. “We’re definitely still in our honeymoon period.” Well, here’s hoping that honeymoon lasts for a long, long time. —Stratton Lawrence SUNDAY
