Few songs are sweeter than "Tennessee," the acoustic tune by upstate New Yorkers Band of Lovers. Their debut single comes correct with homespun violin, upbeat lyrics, even trilled ooh-oo-oohs and la-di-dahs. Friends for 10 years, Sabina Beachdell and Dave Strumfeld united their troubadour talents in 2013 to craft a five-song eponymous EP. Now they're on the road in support of The Coast, a full-length, crowdfunded album they recorded in a cabin in Woodstock. Band of Lovers are so hipster-friendly their CD packaging was constructed out of post-consumer recycled materials in Salem, Oregon. Their music itself is so adorkable the CD's official release date is Valentine's Day. You, on the other hand, can pick yours up a week early, at a release show Feb. 6. Then, scope out some latte art while you enjoy their work live. Say it together, friends: awwwww!

BAND OF LOVERS, 8 p.m. Metronome Coffee, 3518 Sixth Ave., Tacoma, no cover, 253.301.2375
