A few interesting shows are popping up on our horizon in Mid-June – thought I would share. Agnes Obel a Berlin by way of Copenhagen native will play stateside at Philadelphia’s Tin Angel on 6/15. Fans of Tori Amos and Cat Power listen up; Agnes has a smoky, sultry voice and delicate yet poignant piano work that does haunting justice on Elliott Smith’s “Between the Bars.” Click here to listen . If you dig that you can be sure she will light up that tiny upstairs room at the Tin Angel on 6/15.
On the other side of the county on June 10, 11, and 12 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, hosts the Harmony Festival where you can find The Flaming Lips, Primus and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros as well as a plethora of offerings from 300 vendors, thought provoking Speakers presentations, action sports, a steampunk garage, and the overall amplified vibe thanks to a wide variety choice brews and wines.
