Emily Wolfe @ Cactus Cafe - 9/17/2012
Emily Wolfe has been performing every Monday in September as the artist-in-residence at The Cactus Cafe, most recently with Nano Whitman. Her final show is tonight (after performing at KUT earlier in the day), and you should check it out - Updated: archived on KUT. From Cactus' site:
Wolfe's debut record "Director's Notes" is rooted in folk-pop melodies accompanied by a unique, soothing vocal quality and topped with inspired lyrics about the ups and downs of young love."Director's Notes" displays her extraordinary musicianship as a multi-instrumentalist, including guitar, banjo, drums, percussion, bells, piano and Rhodes, helping her weave a layer of vulnerability through each recording. Her style has been compared to the likes of an upbeat Sarah Jaffe, an indie-rock Brandi Carlile, or Sara Bareilles with a guitar.
The quarterly residency series is designed to continue the Cactus Cafe's tradition of providing a platform for promising local talent to reach new audiences. This year, Lone Star Beer's support helps promote the free concert series.
You can get tickets here; it is a free show (with Dawn and Hawkes as openers), though you are welcome/encouraged to donate to support programs like this, and will have a chance while reserving the tickets.
