Young guitarist Elaine Greer has been flying under the radar since releasing an EP in 2009, but with the release of debut LP Annotations
, she’s proven she can take her shimmering folk-pop to the Cactus Cafe or Mohawk. Greer and her band make one last splash before heading out with fellow locals the Sour Notes (of which she’s also a member) for a Midwest/East Coast tour.
Also on the two-stage bill are two ATX acts dropping new albums. Quin Galavis’ first LP, Should Have Known You
, offers sweet 1960s pop; Monarchs’ Southern soul gets updated with its upcoming Mike McCarthy-produced debut, The Rise and Fall
. Prehistoric shredders Megafauna, carnival ladies Agent Ribbons, pop provocateur Pink Nasty, and swing kids MaryAnn & the Revival Band jump on the bandwagon, too. – Audra Schroeder
