This early-evening benefit for the LGBT Center reminds that love comes in all shapes and sizes and genders. The Valentine’s Day season can be horribly depressing, but tonight’s performers emphasize that love is inclusive and welcoming, and just not a rare state of being that must be fought over by jealous minds. With majestic pop entreaties like “Human Female” and more provocatively rocking anthems such as “Keep Your Disease,” Bloodboy presides over the lineup with her aching, powerfully yearning and ultimately inspiring vocals. Lucy & La Mer dig up relatively low-key but charming folk-pop interludes such as “Rainy Days,” while Pom Poms’ music ranges from shadowy, sensual rockers like “Gimme You” to such sweetly dreamy, retro garage-pop tunes as “Betty.” Local songwriter Lexie Rose confides with a singer-songwriter intimacy, and Fiona Grey’s beguiling melodies are wrapped in bluesy riffs.
