Popular Cincinnati band Over the Rhine has traditionally brought in some incredible artists to open its annual hometown Christmas concerts (including Pedro the Lion, Joe Henry and Mary Gauthier, to name but a few) and this year in no different. Up-and-coming Folk duo Lily & Madeleine has the honor this year. The sisters from Indianapolis are currently riding a wave of critical acclaim for their latest album, Fumes, which was released in October as the follow-up to their 2013 self-titled debut full-length and has been hailed for its more adventurous and “bombastic” (according to elle.com) approach. Issued on the Asthmatic Kitty label (co-founded by Sufjan Stevens), NPR enthused, “Fumes is a misleading record, the way a masterfully performed dance is misleading: It looks easy only because the complexities behind it are unfathomable to outsiders.” 


8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20. $40; $42.50 day of. Taft Theatre, 317 E. Fifth St., Downtown, tafttheatre.org.
