San Francisco singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson is one of those lo-fi guys with an infinite supply of tunes about being lovestruck, lovesick or loveless. All the soul-baring could put off less sensitive types, but it should serve as an aphrodisiac for a few young couples in the crowd tonight at the Bottleneck (737 New Hampshire in Lawrence, 785-841-5483). Nathanson performs with Cary Brothers and Kate Voegele. Tickets cost $13.
