DTL, Shalini

When: Fri., June 18, 10 p.m. 2010

Shalini comes together like a five-star Food Network recipe. Sweet-throated frontwoman Shalini Chatterjee's spent almost a quarter century in musical pursuits and, in concert with guitarist hubby Mitch Easter, they know their way around a song. Gleaming power pop hooks, rugged arena rock in the vein of Cheap Trick, warm, shimmering atmospheres and a dash of indie rock eccentricity coexist easily on their three albums. They sound significantly sweeter on stage. Hillsborough openers DTL is an odd pairing, since their bluesy rumble leans heavily on rugged, jam-tested grooves, not sharp hooks and supple grace. —Chris Parker
