A concert for those who can’t make it to SXSW.
SamCrain 700x700[That’s South By Southwest, for the tragically unhip.]
Samantha Crain, Choctaw, is a young singer-songwriter from Oklahoma who will perform live Friday night at the Heard Museum. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert starts at 7 p.m. Best of all its 100% FREE.
Although still in her early 20’s, Samantha Crain’s creative vision has led her to perform on several national tours and she has dozens of self-produced recordings to her credit.
Her odd voice is refreshing and her song-writing is catchy, with out being too “poppy.”
But don’t take my word for it …

Her pleading, slightly distant intonation recalled early-1990s Britpop, an accent atop a voice that traverses the space between Gillian Welch and Regina Spektor.”

There will be a lounge area, cash bar, free parking, and small plates to-go from the Café, which will also offer sit-down service. Head over early to see new works for sale in the Berlin Gallery in the show Native Clay [see above].
