Driven by the endearing, magnetic vocals, lyrics and melodies (not to mention prominent keyboard work) of Leah Diehl, Blonde sumptuously dishes out LL’s slanted, catchy but non-pandering brand of piano Pop and should do a lot to garner the group more (much-deserved) national attention. The trio brings the delightful noise to The Comet for a free show with Detroit’s Jamaican Queens. If you’re an LL newbie, it’s a great chance to preview Lightning Love before its next Cincinnati appearance — Sept. 29 at Know Theatre, as part of this year’s MidPoint Music Festival. See, told you they play in Cincy a lot. 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5. The Comet, 4579 Hamilton Ave., Northside. cometbar.com.
