Tonight's Recommended All-Ages Show: Alex Menne and Friends

Posted by on Fri, Mar 14, 2014 at 12:40 PM

Alex Menne’s solo acoustic ukulele music sounds familiar, and even comforting at first, but paying closer attention to her lyrics can be disarming. On her standout song “Losing It,” she strikes a rough-hewn vocal balance between Thao Nguyen and Justin Vernon while singing about a fraught and deathly scene: “I’m sorry/That it’s easier to give my body/Than surrender my thoughts.” Menne mixes up tales of emotional devastation with some spunkier numbers and soothing lullabies on her upcoming EP, which shows the young songwriter finding her voice. Tonight she shares the bill with Fauna Shade, Seacats, and Jessie Houghton.
