Lake Street Dive Plays Stage AE (Wed., 2/1/23)

Lake Street Dive members met while students at Boston’s New England Conservatory of Music. They named their band after a dive-bar-rich street in Minneapolis, former bandmate Mike Olson’s hometown. Their sound has touches of pop, Americana, jazz, and soul. For proof of their cross-genre appeal, check out 2016’s Side Pony, their fifth LP. It debuted at the top of three Billboard album charts—Rock, Folk, and Alternative. “Call Off Your Dogs,” a song from that album, moves in many musical directions and features a music video filmed at the famed Electric Lady Studios in New York City. Another top hit for Lake Street Dive is Bad Self Portraits from their 2014 album of the same name. Keyboardist Akie Bermiss joined the band in 2017. Lead singer Rachel Price has a lovely soul pop voice which helped power Lake Street Dive to success, as well as helping her forge a successful solo career. The band played the inaugural Maple House Festival at Hartwood acres last May. The group’s latest LP is Obviously, released in 2021.You can see them at Stage AE. Doors open at 7 p.m. Special guest is Monica Martin. 400 North Shore Dr., North Shore. (C.M., R.H.)
