An indie alt-pop lineup doesn’t get sweeter than one consisting of Grand Rapids-based three-piece Lipstick Jodi and Detroit snack-rockers Junk Food Junkies, both of which are supporting best friends Lucy Niles and Josée Caron, who perform as Partner. It’s no wonder these three bands are billed together, as they each strike a balance between levity and raw, unfiltered feels. While Lipstick Jodi drags pop-punk into the alt-rock realm, Junk Food Junkies manage to make a song about Chinese takeout sound like a break-up recovery jam.

Lipstick Jodi, Junk Food Junkies, and Partner will perform at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 7 at UFO Factory; 2110 Trumbull St., Detroit; facebook.com/ufofactorydetroit. Tickets are $10.
