Hello lovelies. I hope you're all staying warm and are surrounded by music and artwork and coziness. Here are just a few things worth leaving the house for. Enjoy!
Hiss Golden Messenger In-Store Performance
Thursday, January 26, 2017
5202 N. College Avenue - all-ages, free, 2 - 3 PM
Have you ever noticed that every single time you walk into LUNA the music they're playing is spot on? Lately they've had Hiss Golden Messenger's sixth album, Heart Like a Levee, in heavy rotation. Singer-songwriter M.C. Taylor is the man behind the Hiss Golden Messenger moniker. Taylor's songs are intimate and layered with the beauty and doubt of family and adulthood. Bonus: He mentions West Lafayette in the groovy touring song, "As the Crow Flies."
Speaking of intimacy, an in-store performance is a wonderful way to hear music up-close and personal. Sneak away from work early to catch this show.
Taylor is playing at The Bishop that evening.

Not-for-profit director by day, music writer by night, Nora Spitznogle reviews music that happened and previews music and events around Broad Ripple Village. Nora managed CATH Inc coffeehouse at 54th Street and College Avenue for seven years. During that time she hosted hundreds of local and touring musicians, both at the coffeehouse and her home. When CATH closed in 2004 and the music was no longer coming to her, she had to wander from her corner of Broad Ripple to see what is happening elsewhere. You can find her at Second Helpings during the work day, waitressing at the Red Key on Saturday nights and prowling Broad Ripple music venues the rest of the time.
