02.08: Americana artist Pi Jacobs releases new album at Hotel Cafe

Americana artist Pi Jacobs returns with her new album Two Truths and a Lie, which she'll release at a show at Hotel Cafe on February 8th. Inspired by the theme to the show Justified, Jacobs' new album blends percussive elements and hip-hop infused beats into her rootsy rock rhythms and melodies. Jacobs wrote Two Truths and a Lie as an homage to women who have fought injustice and oppression throughout history; however, in the writing process, she found some stories about herself had blended into the mix. The album drops everywhere on February 21st, but a music video for the track "Rearview" -- a song about survival -- is available for you to view now. - Will Sisskind

02.01: Ginger Root plays mini-series premiere party at Junior High

The funk-forward DIY crew Ginger Root are gearing up for a little tour in March, but on Saturday, February 1st, they'll perform some music as part of the premiere of Hole Man at Junior High. If you're unfamiliar with Ginger Root's sound -- which blends funk and indie elements along the lines of Toro Y Moi, Vulfpeck, and Jay Som -- you'll want to discover it at this show, as you can pay nothing to get in. This free show will also get you into the premiere of the new mini-series Hole Man, additional performances by RENDER BOY and Jesse Herb, and art and zines for sale from creators Tessa Lowe and Seannie Bryan. If anything, this event's a great chance to support Junior High, a non-profit space dedicated to highlighting marginalized voices with radical empathy and anti-oppression activism. Get yourself familiar with Ginger Root's music by watching the video for "B4", posted below. - Will Sisskind

01.31: L.A. Witch plays Alex's Bar for last U.S. show before summer

L.A. Witch have a new album coming out this summer, but to conserve their energy for its release, they're playing only two shows in the U.S. beforehand. The second of those two shows will happen at Alex's Bar on January 31st. The trio of Ellie English, Sade Sanchez, and Irita Pai toured Europe a second time last year, but compared to their busy 2018, the past several months have seen L.A. Witch taking their time to brew up a plan to become indomitable in these first years of the new decade. If you wonder what L.A. Witch's 2020 release has in store for you, take a listen to their 2018 EP Octubre, which blends psych rock, smoky blues, and punk into a stark and sultry collection of tracks. We've featured "Haunting" below. - Will Sisskind
