some great shows

Ok, there are three shows coming up that I am really excited about.

Next week: Friday January the 27th at Relix (on central across from Time Warp Tearoom, in happy holler)

Painted Desert


Natalie Prass

Painted Desert is made of two really great songwriters (Austin Manuel and Heidi Feek) who have come together to write really fantastic songs. The Nashville duo's music conveys feelings of longing and love so well. The beautiful melodies will be stuck in your head for day, and that is not a bad thing. Here is a video of them performing at music city roots with Joey + Rory:

or my personal favorite "Take Me Home" (it reminds me of Townes Van Zandt or Guy Clark)

Natalie is another fantastic songwriter who really cares about her songs. She crafts beautiful and delicate pop songs that accentuate her ethereal voice. This is a video of her playing in Knoxville last year:

Tuesday January 31st at the Pilot Light

Future Islands

Future Islands are a great band from Baltimore. I have seen them 3 times and every single time was fantastic. The lead singer, Samuel Herring provides an emotional intensity that is hard to beat. He is a crooner who will destroy an audience.

w/Ed Schrader's Music Beat 10 p.m. $8

Monday February 13th at the Pilot Light

Zola Jesus

Zola Jesus is an electro-goth/pop singer with a killer voice. It is going to be awesome.

that voice. w/Talk Normal 10 p.m. $12
