Stop us if you've heard this one before. Unknown band puts up microphone and has a buddy hold a camera to record a Jackson 5 cover on a street corner. A year later the video has millions of YouTube views, the band signs and starts filling theater-sized venues around the country. So it was with Boston's Lake Street Dive and its version of "I Want You Back" in 2012. But this isn't just any band: Singer Rachael Price recalls everything about Amy Winehouse that stopped the world in its tracks, and her band is loose and goosey enough with vintage R&B styles to win the allegiance of Stephen Colbert and Nashville super-producer Dave Cobb. Some bands really are worthy of insta-buzz. Lake Street Dive is one of them.

That's EE-fuh to You: Pronounced just like that, Aoife O'Donovan, best known as singer for post-old-time band Crooked Still, opens this evening with her own exceptional voice and songs.

Watch Lake Street Dive's cover of "I Want You Back" below:

Lake Street Dive 
8 p.m. Thursday, August 4. The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard. $27.50 to $25. 314-726-6161.
