Phil Cook, Plume Giant 

When: Fri., Jan. 11, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $7

Brooklyn folk-rock trio Plume Giant specializes in balance: On Callithump, the band's 2012 full-length debut, the big-hearted swelters that have turned Mumford & Sons into a movement share space with somber chamber pop, while the saccharine pop charms of She & Him co-conspire with a nearly vaudevillian sense of adventure. They also manage to sound bigger than a three-piece, with vaulting co-ed harmonies and bracing string arrangements serving as the propulsion for these plaintive numbers. The visitors share a bill with Phil Cook, the Megafaun member whose folk and blues erudition serves as the anchor for the band's postmodern explorations of those realms. His solo music, delivered with the assistance of His Feat, is elegant and earnest, the sound of the romantic surveying the terrain before him.—Grayson Currin
