The Gothic Theatre Presents: Angel Olsen
Thursday, February 9 I 8:00p.m.
Gothic Theatre, 3263 S. Broadway
Angel Olsen is one of the biggest up and coming singer/songwriters in indie rock right now. Her 2016 release My Woman was near the top of most year end lists and it was quite a departure from her first release. Her stripped down, indie folk sound was revamped for her second album into a poppier groove, while retaining the dark sensibilities that she first displayed on Burn Your Fire For No Witness. Check her out now because I guarantee that the next time she rolls through town, tickets will be much more expensive. Speaking of tickets, you better get them ASAP because the first show has already sold out.

Former Soul Coughing founder Mike Doughty has gone on to become even bigger in his own right than his band ever was. Touring on the release of last year’s The Heart Watches While The Brain Burns, Doughty has come a long way from when he was driving around the country in a rental car and selling his own albums from the front of the stage, post-show. Hopefully, he won’t be busting up any Starbucks while he’s here, even if that song always makes me want to do so.
