Doe Paoro – Rough Trade (Brooklyn, NY)

The pop songwriter hits the road on a headlining fall tour to support new album Soft Power (Anti-), which trades her trademark electronic soundscapes for girl-group harmonies and piano-driven pop. With a penetrating voice that can shift from gentle to commanding in an instant, Doe Paoro delivers a performance perfectly suited for her new album’s message of thoughtful defiance and what she calls "pop music with wisdom."

Spalding’s string of 12 unique pop-up shows across North America mirror the dozen tracks off her latest project 12 Little Spells (Concord), in which one song “premieres” on social media every day.

Phosphorescent – Brooklyn Steel (Brooklyn, NY)

Matthew Houck ends a busy 2018 with a headlining North American tour in honor of new album C’est La Vie (Dead Oceans). Houck’s new live presentation matches the earthy and incandescent glow of his new music, which expands upon his troubled and serene indie-folk hailed by Pitchfork for its “beauty and profundity.” Houck has brought Phosphorescent to Jimmy Fallon, headlining tours and dates with Father John Misty and The National and the festival stages of Glastonbury, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.
