Jenny Lewis w/ The Apache Relay
Both Tori Amos at the O'Shaughnessy and Broken Bells at the State Theatre ticket costs about $40 each... if that's out of your price range, come check out The Apache Relay and Jenny Lewis at First Avenue on August 3rd.
Since many of you may know Lewis' name as actress (various film & television roles) and singer of Rilo Kiley and Jenny & Johnny, you may not know opener The Apache Relay.
The Apache Relay are based out of Nashville, and they will be playing tracks from their new self-titled album, which is out now via So Recordings.
I got a chance to hear their single, "Katie Queen of Tennessee" and it sounded great! You will find yourself humming to the melodies.
The Apache Relay confirmed tour dates:
08/01 Chicago, IL - Park West*
08/03 Minneapolis, MN - First Avenue*
08/09 Charlotte, NC - God Save the Queen City

7TH STREET ENTRY
Indie-pop band PHOX (pronounced 'fox') are playing the 7th Street Entry this Monday, August 4th. Expect the Wisconsin-based band to play tracks from their self-titled debut album, which came out June 24th via Partisan Records.
PHOX's single, "Kingfisher", was made iTunes Singles of the Week for the week of July 8th, which made the band quite happy. Band member Zach Johnston talked about the song, explaining that the song was "about longing for a certain person romantically and then realizing that you may have invented the whole infatuation in your head. Who knows how things would have turned out had you actually been in a relationship with this person..."
