Lucius

September 16. Fronted and founded by harmonizing singers Less Wolfe and Holly Laessig, Brooklyn's Lucius is emblematic of the borough's new wave of intelligent indie pop, although the two women have actually been vocalizing together since their college days in Boston. "We started singing in unison because we were always drawn to doubled vocals on recordings," says Wolfe. "We figured it couldn't hurt to try it in a live setting, and it just felt like our voices were supposed to be sitting together—an automatic vocal kinship." The group, which plays the Bearsville Theater this month, debuted in 2013 with Wildewoman, which attracted luminous praise from the New York Times, the Boston Globe, and NPR. (The Antlers poke in September 5; Heartless Bastards rock September 13.) 8pm. $20. Bearsville. (845) 679-4406; Bearsvilletheater.com.
