Adrianne Lenker & Nick Hakim, Molly Sarlé 

When: Fri., March 9, 8 p.m. 2018
Price: $13-$15

In barely two years, Adrianne Lenker has released two of the best indie rock records of the decade with her band, Big Thief. The Brooklyn group's debut LP, 2016's Masterpiece, lived up to its title, and last year's Capacity managed to one-up it. The band's instrumental constructions are striking, but its true power comes from Lenker's breathtaking songwriting. She explores weighty subjects from her own life—heartbreak, abuse, loss—but approaches them with empathy and grace, turning pain and uncertainty into utterly gorgeous songs. If you count yourself among the tenderhearted, Lenker's songs are a salve and sucker punch all in one. Nick Hakim, meanwhile, leans into hazy, semi-psychedelic rock that borrows liberally from soul. It's relaxed and easygoing, dreamy enough that you'll feel like floating away to the sounds of Hakim's intimate introspections. He performs second, and Molly Sarlé opens with a spellbinding set of her own. —Allison Hussey
