with Brian Dunne
Blessed with a commanding, blast-it-to-the-back-of-the-room voice, Lydia Loveless is “a master storyteller with a voice that goes down like honey and lyrics that bite like a hangover” (Paste Magazine). Her genre-agnostic concoction of roots country, proto-punk, and soaring pop has earned her comparisons to everyone from Loretta Lynn and Stevie Nicks to The Replacements and Old 97’s. Loveless’ debut album, 2011’s Indestructible Machine, was described as “hillbilly punk with a honky-tonk heart” (Uncut). While subsequent albums furthered her genre-smashing impulses. Loveless’ lyrics echo the ferocity and emotion of her music with a balance between the ecstatic and the intensely personal.
New York singer/songwriter Brian Dunne opens the show with a combination of sharp lyrical prowess and country-tinged vocals.
