Cost: $20 - $28+
CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: Practically a one-woman band, all soul singer and jazz guitarist Venson needs is a drummer and some sophisticated multi-tracking loops to sound like a full group. Her prog/funk songs are quirky, cool, and unique — but when she lays into a guitar solo with her eyes skyward, she shifts into another musical dimension. Venson will likely feature music from her new album, Evolution of Joy, and its 19 tracks. — HH
