Welcome, November. Be thankful these bands are visiting this month:
Imogen Heap is back supporting her recent release “Ellipse” and will be showcasing her one-man-band skills at in the Venue on the 12th. After riding the wave that was “Let Go” for some time, the British singer/songwriter is right back where she left off. Be sure to catch this impressive solo act live.
Suggested Listen: “First Train Home”
Who else fell in love with the movie “Once”—especially the gorgeous soundtrack and stunning Marketa and Glen, now known together as The Swell Season. The good news is this duo is back with their latest full-length album, “Strict Joy.” The sound that made them famous, including catchy hooks and beautiful melodies, is emulated in each track on their new album. The bad news? The show already looks to be sold out. Try your luck at Craigslist.
Suggested Listen: “In These Arms”
One of my favorite new-to-me bands hail from Portland Oregon, called Blind Pilot. This duo set out on a bike tour traveling from Vancouver to San Francisco playing shows and peddling their album, all on bicycle. Luckily, they kept the momentum going by releasing their 2009 album, “3 Rounds & A Sound.” Catch them (and maybe their bikes) on November 29 at Urban Lounge.
Suggested Listen: “One Red Thread”
