Chris Pureka, Nicole Reynolds, Humble Tripe 

When: Tue., Jan. 18, 8:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $12

By definition, Chris Pureka's a New England folkie. The intimacy and emotional urgency of the Connecticut-born singer's music rivals Joni Mitchell, only minus the delicacy. There's something rugged and dusky in her throaty alto that dovetails nicely with the androgyny she cultivates. Her five ambling acoustic-based albums lean toward the rough-hewn country-folk of Neil Young, flecked with bursts of down-home Appalachia. It's an austere sound that amplifies her soft-spoken intensity. While prior releases possess stark atmospheres that are more about vibe than texture, her latest, How I Learned To See In The Dark, increases the sonic detail without compromising the affecting starkness. With Nicole Reynolds and Humble Tripe. —Chris Parker
