LA Crossroads Presents: Theresa Anderson at Manship Theatre
New Orleans-based multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Theresa Andersson's latest work draws from a wide range of roots and pop influences and makes the most of her ability to perform on more than one instrument simultaneously via digital looping technology. Her voice is as much of an instrument as the drums, guitar, violin and improvised sonic devices she'll feature in these solo shows which will offer unique insight into her musical world.

Dimestore Troubadours at Red Star
From 225: "Dimestore Troubadours: Barring all constraints of space, time and shear reason, if Jean Renoir had directed a proto version of Swingers set in the depressed Los Angeles of 1935, and it starred Vincent Gallo rather than Vince Vaughn and ended not in a sunny day coffee shop but in a filthy midnight alleyway where the only shining object was the blade of a knife, no doubt the soundtrack would have been eerily similar to this six-song set from the Dimestore Troubadours."

Catch the Dimestore Troubadours at Red Star Saturday, February 27
