Valerie June

Americana/Roots, R&B/Soul, Alternative, Jazz, Live Music in Bar/Club
Valerie June's "organic moonshine roots music" consists of folk, blues and country elements. She plays banjo, guitar, uke and slide to accompany her singing and storytelling. Her most remarkable instrument is her voice, which one short listing in The New Yorker magazine described as "somewhere between the mountains and the swamps." In 2017, New York Times critic Jon Pareles came at it from a different angle: "Her voice is full of endearingly human quirks and flaws," he wrote. "It wavers, it cracks, it scratches, it goes nasal; it’s unvarnished. And it sounds fully alive." She sounds like no one else.

Stiff Little Fingers

Punk, Rock
Belfast's Stiff Little Fingers were formed in 1977 and mentioned in the same breaths as The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Jam, Buzzcocks, Undertones, Sham 69 and The Stranglers in the first wave of British punk. Legendary DJ John Peel broke their debut single, "Suspect Device"/"Wasted Life," nationwide, and in 1979, their debut album, "Inflammable Material," was the first indie album to break the UK top 20. They broke up in early 1983, but frontman Jake Burns and bassist Ali McMordie came together for some reunion shows in 1987. Burns continued with SLF after that, this time with Bruce Foxton from The Jam on bass. McMordie returned to the band in 2006; he and Burns are joined by guitarist Ian McCallum and drummer Steve Grantley.
