Tonight @ Sugar Maple, 9 p.m.
Like her kindred spirit and sometimes collaborator Heidi Spencer, folk-pop singer Lisa Gatewood's songs play like a series of deep, heavenly sighs. That sense of dreamy resignation carried Gatewood's 2007 debut, I've Read Salinger, a loose song cycle about emotional retreat, and it returns on her sophomore release, Midway, a lovely album rich with themes of infatuation and separation. The songstress will play two sets tonight to mark the album's release.
