8:30pm: Kath Bloom, “an earthy, unpretentious presence, can snap a heart like a twig.” — Stephen M. Deusner, PitchFork

9:15pm: Rachel Mason

10pm: Josephine Foster, is a Colorado-born artist whose songwriting draws from far corners of the musical spectrum to form a truly singular body of work. While sometimes compared to such singers as Shirley Collins or Tiny Tim, it is difficult to pigeonhole her arresting vocal style. She says her craft is strongly shaped by "Tin Pan Alley on my maternal side, rock and roll on my paternal side, Western folk music by birth, art-song and classical music via my adolescent passions". Wire calls her 2009 release "Graphic As A Star" (Fire Records) which is based on the poetry of Emily Dickenson "endlessly compelling."
