The ticket: Pop music

LANTERNS ON THE LAKE Beneath the hulking layers of shimmering guitars and swirling synths lies a lot of delicate beauty in the melodies this British indie-rock ensemble creates on its new album, “Until the Colours Run.” Led by singer Hazel Wilde, whose voice flickers with the fragility of Karen O, the buzzed-about band comes to town on its first-ever North American tour. Feb. 4, 9:30 p.m. Tickets: $12. Great Scott.

BETTYE LAVETTE It’s always a pleasure to see this seasoned soul singer at work. LaVette (pictured) is a vocalist who approaches her craft like a Method actor: She embodies the emotion at hand in a song, be it love or loss, joy or rage. It’s all there in her concerts; if you don’t leave feeling gutted, you weren’t paying attention. Feb. 4, 8 p.m. Tickets: $40. Johnny D’s, Somerville. 617-776-2004, www.ticketweb.com

TOM BROSSEAU The first impression Brosseau imparts is not the lasting one. You might think he coos like a nightingale, and he does, but he’s also able to convey a range of feeling, especially humor. On “Grass Punks,” his new album, the California-based singer-songwriter tackles the most modern of our frustrations: trying to love someone who can’t put down their phone (check out “Cradle Your Device”). Feb. 5, 8 p.m. Tickets: $12. Club Passim, Cambridge. 617-492-7679, www.clubpassim.com
