CHAMBER POP | The Lighthouse and The Whaler 

On the heels of a brief tour with Central New York sweethearts Ra Ra Riot, Cleveland-based band The Lighthouse and The Whaler bring its melodic folk-rock, replete with glockenspiel and strings, to town. The outfit has released two albums and an EP over the course of its five-year existence, each showcasing enough catchy sing-along choruses and handclaps to thaw even the coldest heart. The band has shared stages with the likes of Sufjan Stevens and The Dodos, and its music has found its way to both television and radio, so you may just have heard it before and not even been aware of it. Local bands Gin & Bonnets and Archimedes both perform as well.

The Lighthouse and The Whaler performs Sunday, May 12, 9 p.m. at Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $7-$9. bugjar.com.
