Probably best known for his fling with Claire Danes, Ben Lee might be considered the least famous of the sensitive, singer-songwriter "Bens" (Ben Folds and Ben Kweller round out the bunch).

But that might change with his seventh disc, "Ripe." With guest spots from Benji Madden of Good Charlotte and Mandy Moore, this indie rock troubadour looks like he's making a break for the mainstream.

See him tomorrow night at the Middle East Downstairs with openers Carey Brothers and Kate Voegele. Doors open at 7:30 and tickets are $15.
