The Lonely Forest’s latest release, Arrows, is a wonderfully bright, guitar-driven pop record with an onslaught of anthemic moments, and tonight their songs will sound bigger than ever as they’re performed along with the 50-piece Seattle Rock Orchestra. Everything Seattle Rock Orchestra touches turns to goose-bump-giving gold. They’ve backed Jeremy Enigk and Damien Jurado, they’ve performed tributes to Stevie Wonder and Queen, and every event has been incredible. I promise you, this will be an amazing night of music. With Black Whales. (Neptune Theatre, 1303 NE 45th St,, 9 pm, $15 adv/$17 DOS, all ages)
