Julien Baker (Back Room) 

When: Wed., Jan. 27, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $10
Julien Baker, who turned 20 last year, is a prodigious talent who seems to be a star lurking in the wings. Recorded under the auspices of Richmond’s Spacebomb empire, her nine-song debut, Sprained Ankle, suggests the early elegance of Sharon Van Etten records and the austerity of Pedro the Lion’s most focused, forceful LPs. Though she mesmerizes when she mopes, there are twinkles of a true pop sensibility to Sprained Ankle, suggesting that Baker is still settling on exactly how to use her beautifully curling voice. All the same, it’s uniformly gorgeous stuff, here for the early taking. —Grayson Haver Currin
