Lucy Michelle and The Velvet Lapelles have been together for a long time. A string of well-received albums, best band nods and consistently well-attended shows has made the act a local treasure. In the past year though, they've been a little off the radar. Now we know why — the band has traded in their traditional folk sound for a full sonic revamp and the results on their newest record Heat couldn't be more promising.

More musicians are now in the mix, and Lucy is plugging in her ukulele to create songs that rock more than sway. As the band has matured in age, their style has definitely followed suit, and we're prepping now for one of the breakout records of the year.

Songs performed: "Just A Kid," "Wise Eyes," and "Million Things"
