Poulain front man Isaac Lekach was named Best Solo Performer last year in the New Times 2003 Best Of issue. Though some Best Of recipients have found their careers in a dead zone after winning, this isn't true for Lekach. The Miami-born singer/songwriter went on to form a band to carry out his melancholy orch-pop tunes and even inked a deal with L.A.'s Fiddler Records. The 2003 release, For Passengers, swept up the dust and dirt of the City of Angels, where the band now resides, and turned it into four tracks of atmospheric twee you wouldn't want to sweep under the rug. Check out Poulain with New York's Fire When Ready at 9 p.m. Wednesday, April 14, at the Lounge (517 Clematis St., West Palm Beach). Call 561-655-9747. -- Audra Schroeder
