Lake Street Dive wasn’t sure what it wanted to be when the quartet formed in 2004 at the New England Conservatory of Music—and five albums later that hasn’t changed. The name of its new release, Side Pony, was taken from the hairstyle that can’t decide if it wants to be wild or subdued. “We’ve always been this somewhat uncategorizable, weird, outlying, genre-less band,” says bassist Bridget Kearney. Members were inspired by their musician parents to create a modern blend of retro jazz, indie, pop and soul. Folk/pop singer Brett Dennen opens.

Saturday 6/11. $30, 7pm. Sprint Pavilion, 700 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4910.
