Trevor Powers of Youth Lagoon knows what he’s doing: Last fall, this Idaho-based dream-pop dude titled his supremely sleepy debut The Year of Hibernation, and when Powers recently taped a live session for SiriusXM’s alt-rock channel, he went ahead and busted out a cover of “Goodbye Again” by John Denver. Tonight, Youth Lagoon plays the first of two gigs in town, both of which are sold out—just like the three Death Cab for Cutie shows he’ll open next month at the Beacon. Dana Buoy (of Akron/Family) shares the bill at the Bowery Ballroom; Porcelain Raft takes over tomorrow at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
