B-Sides: Brenna Sahatjian 

RESTLESS FOLK

Multi-instrumentalist Brenna Sahatjian is coming into town from her Portland home to offer up a taste of her brooding, alt-folk arrangements. As shown on her month-old album The Ruby, Sahatjian is comfortable composing on guitar and cello, layering her sullen, firey lyrics (case in point: one song title is "The Dull Throb of Patience") over in her strong, earnest vocals. There's a decent amount of early '90s lo-fi riot nostalgia woven into The Ruby's discontented vibe, which seems to offer empathy and apathy side-by-side.

Sahatjian will be in Tucson on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at The Flycatcher (340 E. Sixth St.). The show kicks off at 9 p.m. with Seattle's accordion and vox act On a Clear Day opening the show. There's no cover, but donations are appreciated for the touring acts. It is a 21 and over event.
