Margaret Glaspy, Bad Bad Hats (Back Room) 

When: Mon., Feb. 6, 8:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $12-$15

Last year was bad for many, many reasons, but it was a great one for strong solo records by female artists, from Beyoncé and Solange to Angel Olsen and Jenny Hval. Also in this camp is Margaret Glaspy, whose debut LP, Emotions and Math, found the singer-songwriter ruminating on late-twenties vulnerability. Glaspy's writing hops from pointed—"You haven't got a clue, so don't tell me what to do," she sneers on "Situation"—to poignant, as on "Black Is Blue" and "No Matter Who." Her lyrics cut straight to the heart, and Glaspy ups the ante with commanding guitar riffs. You don't have to be an actuary to understand that Emotions and Math yields a wonderful artistic sum. With Bad Bad Hats. —Allison Hussey
