Blackbird Sing + Nicolette Good

When: Sat., Jan. 16, 9 p.m. 2016

Blackbird Sing has found the recipe to blending the swaggering bravado of punk, emotively captivating lyrics of the grandest forms of folk, rural country music aesthetics, the experimentation of an indie band with nothing to lose, and good old fashioned Americana that can only be described as exclusively their own. If asked, Vito will tell it like he has countless times before “It’s not how you play. It’s what you play that really matters.” More Info: Nicolette Good is a San Antonio-based singer/songwriter and a winner of the Kerrville New Folk competition. Her first full-length album, Monarch, includes tracks like “Marathon” that earned her a spot on the docu-reality TV show, Troubadour, TX. Her followup album, Little Boat on a Wave (2015), includes songs she worked on during an artist residency called The Lighthouse Works on Fishers Island, New York. Critics have called her “a songwriter to follow” and “a poet of the first order,” making her feel right at home performing in listening rooms and intimate venues. More Info:
