Sometimes lifes simple pleasures reveal the best surprises. Witness H.B. pop outfit Honeypie, who fill this months residency at Detroit Bar with simple, catchy hooks and insidiously insightful lyrics. The diminutive, 27-year-old Trisha Smith coos narratives about lifes sudden disasters in an optimistic, high-pitched, über-girly voice, her pipes concealing an unparalleled resonance that sneaks up unannounced and floors unsuspecting listeners. Bonus: The band promise a few surprises during their three-night residency, including musical guest appearances. Simply not to be missed.
Mondays, 9 p.m. Starts: April 11. Continues through April 25, 2011
