CL Critic Jessica Goodson Recommends: Known for their vibrant cabaret core live shows, Atlanta natives Sarah & the Safe Word are bringing us a new album and with that comes a highly anticipated release show. This queercore, goth rock band puts on a show full of moving parts, orchestral instrumentation and vocal harmonies that probably aren’t like anything you’ve ever seen before. They’ve given us two singles from their upcoming album The Book of Broken Glass, releasing Apr. 7, and both are every indication this could be their best LP yet. “Ruby Off The Rails” and “Sky On Fire” feature incredibly strong vocals from front-person Sarah Rose as well as dark and powerful theatrical themes and sounds that only they could pull off. This spooky sextet’s release show will be anything but boring, and have support from NY’s Shayfer James, TN’s Flummox and more. - JG
