Lake Street Dive jumping off | Concert preview

Named after a Minneapolis street dotted with dive bars, this ridiculously infectious boy-girl-boy-girl quartet toiled in obscurity for nearly a decade before pulling in more than a million views of its minimalist YouTube cover of the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back.”

A Manhattan show spun off from the Coen Brothers film, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” earned the disarming folk-jazz-soul group gigs on “The Colbert Report,” “The Late Show with David Letterman” and a springboard for a welcome second album, “Bad Self Portraits.”

With drawling, sexy-lipped lead singer Rachael Price up front, bassist Bridget Kearney in back, Michael Olson on guitar and trumpet and Mike Calabrese on drums, this unusual group is about to pop.

Lake Street Dive

8 p.m. Tuesday, March 11, at the Neptune Theatre, 1303 N.E. 45th St., Seattle; $18-$20 (877-784-4849 or stgpresents.org).
