Local music fans, whether lovelorn or lucky in love, won't find a better Valentine's Day bill than this one. Chris Koza is an affable troubadour whose wry indie-folk is showcased on his latest release, The Dark, Delirious Morning. The ubiquitous Velvet Lapelles rode a wave of praise into the new year with their debut, Orange Peels & Rattlesnakes, on which Lucy Michelle's singular croon adorns a bevy of plaintive ballads and raucous sing-alongs sure to warm the hearts of even the most cynical Valentines. Big Trouble, known for rotating in guest members from the local scene, round out the evening. 18+.
