FRIDAY 2/14. The Undercroft. 8 p.m. $10.
By the time Valentine’s Day rolls around, we’ve been bombarded with holiday-adjacent messaging for a few solid weeks, and those of us with kids will likely be experiencing all that sweetness in the form of candy hearts and bits of pink glitter, to be unearthed from between the car seat cushions until at least July. Hell, even those lucky enough to be gazing through the rose-colored lens of new love are probably itching for an antidote of twang and pathos come Feb. 14, and for that, Mandy McBryde is bringing the sad-song goods. The Arkansas native is one-third of the Little Rock-based supergroup Wildflower Revue, and her knack for wrapping gut-punch lyrics in a languid, gauzy delivery is both trademark and secret weapon. She’s joined by longtime collaborator Brent LaBeau on bass at this intimate basement venue; wine and beer are available for a donation.
