Perfume Genius, Parenthetical Girls, Cassis Orange 

When: Fri., March 30, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12

Pointing toward a rarified crossroads between Antony Hegarty, Sufjan Stevens and Sparklehorse, Seattle's Perfume Genius makes very quiet songs seem very powerful. On the excellent Put Your Back N 2 It, leader Mike Hadreas makes each note and every line feel essential, his tender voice delivering sweet sadness with the most delicate blows. His old friends in Parenthetical Girls open with complicated pop that splits the difference between being ornate and economical; an excellent bandleader, head Girl Zac Pennington suggest Beirut's Zach Condon bringing his interests back home. Cassis Orange opens. —Grayson Currin
