Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapelles, Radar's Clowns of Sedation 

When: Wed., March 20, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $8-10

If the rhyme scheme of folk-leaning Minnesota crew Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles weren't a giveaway, this band makes cute and quaint music that springs forth from ukuleles and xylophones, string sections and jangling guitars. That cuteness doesn't come backed by much of a core, though, as Michelle's songs seem as devoid of experience and upheaval as her generic wallpaper coo. Combining folk tropes and common chord progressions into tunes built for primetime has become a pandemic, and Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles are simply another case study.—Grayson Currin
