Lady Lamb the Beekeeper will be back in Cambridge tomorrow night, headlining a wonderful evening at the Middle East upstairs. She’s been creating a lot of well-earned buzz for the last year or so, making the rounds between Boston, Brooklyn and her hometown of Portland, Maine. Her diminutive frame belies her gigantic stage presence; once she starts singing it’s hard to see her as anything less than thirty feet tall with a megaphone. The true power of her performance can be seen in the lulls within the songs; she commands the audience’s attention so strongly that every pause leaves a deafening hush over the room until she starts again. When she is performing, no one is watching the game, no one speaks above a whisper and even the tiny clink of glasses from the back of the room seems to be a cacophonous interruption; it’s rare to see a performer hold such sway over the crowds so well.

She’ll be joined by Maine born but Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Luke Rathborne and the ethereal yet somehow still down to earth Milkman’s Union, who also hail from Maine. Sort of seems like they all got together on purpose.
