Singer-songwriter Ryan Sheffield and his band headline a night of local indie-rock. Sheffield and company recently released Telescope, an album's worth of songs that rock, Pogues-like, at turns thoughtful and tipsy. The frontman's delivery is both lithe and raspy, his lyrics skip and glide like boozy poetry, as poignant as they are fun. And each song is underscored by Bryan Highhill's musicianship (Highhill also lends his name to the band's moniker). They'll take the stage at Emerald Lounge on Friday, April 12. Ben Trickey, Total War and Madre also perform. 9 p.m., $5. http://www.emeraldlounge.com.
