After high school, she took off for New York City, where she became part of the renaissance of the Greenwich Village folk scene. Currently on tour in support of her album Reunion, Lucy continues to perform all over the world.

Friday, January 17 – R. Kelly @ Fuego Lounge 

Say what you will about R. Kelly. One thing you can’t deny about him, though, is that he is a generous man! R. Kelly turned 47 this month but instead of demanding gifts, he gave US a present in the form of a brand new album! He’ll be celebrating his birthday and the album at a release party this Friday night at the fiery Fuego Lounge.

Doors at 10pm. Tickets are $50. Online and phone sales close at 4pm.

Friday, January 17 – Those Darlins @ The EARL 

Those Darlins entered the public eye in 2008, announcing themselves a gang of resilient outsiders, each a misfit of Southern upbringing. Their debut let the world know they weren’t just anybody’s darlings; if you didn’t want them in all their wild glory, you didn’t have to hang. Following a spikier second album, Jessi, Nikki, and Linwood set out to uncover the complicated nature of themselves as individuals and as a band. The result is a new sound and a new record they’ll showcase Friday night at the EARL.

 
Doors at 9pm. Tickets are $10 in advance. Online and phone sales end at 6pm.

Sunday, January 19 – Grant-Lee Phillips 

“History and legend have often found their way into my songs” reflects Grant-Lee Phillips. “But sometimes, I don’t have to look quite so far to find inspiration.” Walking in the Green Corn, his newest album, is drawn from intensive investigations into his native Muskogee lineage. He’ll delve into his mysterious past Sunday night at Eddie’s Attic.
