CL Critic Jessica Goodson Recommends: ozello is a five-piece eclectic folk punk band whose songs are deeply influenced by the experience of growing up queer in the south, with divorced parents and a lost sense of belonging. Some of their songs are punk, others are folk, and many are both. Their use of fiddle and trumpet make them unique in their sound but what really makes them shine is the lyricism we get from songwriter and front person, Jeofry Wages. Wages uses his rural South Georgia hometown experience to write songs that are raw, relatable, and incredibly thoughtful. With songs like "Right Where You Belong" about leaving his hometown, "Borderline" about struggling with mental health, and "Boy???" about feeling out of place in your own skin, ozello is guaranteed to have a song that you can relate to. Speaking of relatable songwriters, Yankee Roses is also on this bill, another folk punker whose songwriting cuts deep into his lived experiences, no matter how light or dark they may be. Self-identified as "reclusive folk," this artist's most recent EP, Soothsayer, contains three new original songs as well as a cover of Blondie's "Dreaming."Both of these local acts are supporting ATX indie rock band Under the Rug and Nashville's synth pop artist Basic Printer. - JG
