Okay hear us out: 2017 has been a terrible year politically and environmentally, but boy have there been some great albums so far. At the top of those lists could be all three artists on this show: Jay Som, Stef Chura, and Soccer Mommy. All three play beautiful pop tunes to help ease the every day pain of existence on this planet, and we can’t wait for Tuesday when they come to The Sinclair. You could join us even by entering our ticket giveaway below! We’ll be giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky person who will be contacted Monday if they have won.
Just thinking about how Jay Som’s Melina Duterte plays every instrument on her perfect 2017 record Everybody Works makes everyone feel like they should be accomplishing more with their lives. But instead we’ll listen to “The Bus Song” on the way to work and think about how we wish we could be petting “1 Billion Dogs” instead.
Stef Chura’s Messes crept in quietly at the beginning of the year but quickly showed her mastery as a weird fuzz pop songwriter. She’s been catching on some incredible tours this year including this one, a small headlining tour (that came to ONCE not too long ago!), and shows with our favorites Sad13.
Soccer Mommy is self-proclaimed “chill but kinda sad” and honestly same, but Sophie Allison has perfected it. Enough so to catch the attention of The New York Times recently in this great piece about women and non-binary folks taking over guitar rock (thank the Lorde they did)
So that’s it! A great show, so what more could you ask for? Probably to go for free:
Jay Som, Stef Chura, and Soccer Mommy
