Singer-songwriter Lisa Rock and Justin Boller perform during a recent concert of “Close to You: the Music of The Carpenters.” The music of Karen and Richard Carpenter will be celebrated Friday when Rock and her six-piece band perform a tribute to the biggest-selling group of the ’70s at the Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center for the Performing Arts,  910 Main St. The performance is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets range from $10 to $30 per person. Considered one of the best vocalists of all time, the late Karen Carpenter captured the attention of a generation with her unabashedly catchy pop music.  The Carpenters songs topped the Billboard charts with more than a dozen No. 1 hits, including “We’ve Only Just Begun” and “Rainy Days and Mondays.”
