The founding members of Lifehouse had their roots as a Christian band but made a smooth, quick, and profitable transition into alternative rock, forging several huge hits including "Hanging by a Moment," "Broken," "You and Me" and "Whatever It Takes." Fronted by Jason Wade, whose vocals convey both emotion and potency, the band's strikes a gentle balance between driving rock and emotionally-fortified ballads. The group recently released its fifth album, Smoke and Mirrors, and while it doesn't deviate from the band's formula, it doesn't hold a candle to the masterful, self-titled third album that includes several masterful compositions, including the "Better Luck Next Time," "Undone" and "Blind." Opening act is Kris Allen, the cuddly-cute crooner who won American Idol a few seasons back. Sunday, Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. at DAR Constitution Hall.
