Lucy Dacus, Quiet Hollers, S.E. Ward

When: Tue., March 8, 9 p.m. 2016

Richmond’s Lucy Dacus seems to sing while sporting a shrug. The nine songs of her excellent new LP, No Burden, consider hard truths with casual aplomb, as though she’s content to greet the anxieties of adulthood with a wink, a joke, and a strummed electric guitar. The more somber moments show her voice has the same mix of muscle and grace as Sharon Van Etten. Brace yourself when she steps in front of her full rock band, as on “Strange Torpedo” and “I Don’t Wanna Be Fun Anymore,” where she handles complexity with the simple cool of Courtney Barnett or Protomartyr’s Joe Casey. —Grayson Haver Currin
