Love Language, Telekinesis 

When: Sun., March 13, 9:30 p.m. 2011

"Dreaming of the coast of Carolina/ Dreaming of all the ways you will smile," sang Seattle one-man rock band Michael Benjamin Lerner, or Telekinesis, on his 2009 Merge debut. Though certainly not carefree, Lerner's first album was mostly bounds and smiles, a series of long-distance love letters to a girlfriend on the other coast. As its name might presage, 12 Desperate Straight Lines is the other end of that relationship, the breakup that caused him to run his bass through distortion and write a dozen stormy songs. Lerner's still got an ear for the sing-along, but the resilience and lift of his older work has, at least temporarily, given way to dealing with heartsickness. That means he's made a fitting tourmate for labelmates The Love Language, a band that turns the exigencies, anguish and embarrassment of love into soul-girded garage rock anthems. They sell out the Cat's Cradle, but tonight they'll headline this sold-out show. —Grayson Currin
