    Damien Jurado, Katy Kirby

    Ever since the February unveiling of Katy Kirby’s debut Cool Dry Place, I’ve kept the Spicewood native at the top of my pandemic-albums-to-see-live list. The frankly affirming LP from local imprint Keeled Scales serves up a raw, refreshing whirlwind of folk and indie rock. Unexpected twists and observational humor fuel the grand catharsis of “Juniper” and delicate communion of “Tap Twice.” While Kirby’s September opening dates with Waxahatchee already sold out Mohawk, long-haul experimenter Damien Jurado offers prime opportunity to experience the Texan. The regarded Seattle singer-songwriter, known for expeditions across roots and electronic, stripped down on homespun May album The Monster Who Hated Pennsylvania, Jurado’s first release on his own Maraqopa Records.

      Northern-Southern: Baton

      This is a group show by relay, begun in July of 2020 as a method of socially distancing a community in the height of the pandemic: Artists took turns alone in the space, each adding to the exhibition. Now, as it nears its close, the exhibition resembles a community in which work converses and overlaps. With Adreon Henry, Vy Ngo, Dawn Okoro, Leon Alesi, Matt Steinke, Sev Coursen, Stella Alesi, and more.
      Closing reception: Sat., July 24, 3-9pm
