INDIE/FOLK | Kristen Ford Band 

This Boston-based singer-songwriter has been praised for her multidimensional sound and dynamic live shows, which feature beat boxing, fervent lyrical appeal, improvisational songwriting, and a percussive approach to acoustic guitar. Ford, in the best possible way, is a genre train wreck, mixing the styles of reggae, indie, folk, and disco into a frenetic musical fold that The NYC Deli has described as "pure rock 'n' roll screaming with childish joy." Pretend that Ani DiFranco and Bob Marley had a child that goes bar-hopping with Isaac Brock and you'll have a pretty good idea of Ford's sonic journeys. While some of her stage banter might be inappropriate, the songs ooze with a vigilant propriety. Local acts Mikaela Davis and Sean Michael Smith will also perform.

Kristen Ford performs Friday, March 1, 8 p.m. at Tala Vera, 155 State St. $5-$7. 546-3845, tala-vera.com.
