Tomorrow: Lydia Loveless @ Beachland Tavern

I’ve been hearing quite a bit of buzz about this Columbus-based artist.  She gets comparisons to Neko and talk about her non-traditional route to her country-esqe sound.  That’s all enough to intrigue me to go see her live tomorrow night.  


Writing from a new-found place of conviction, Lydia crafted 10 songs that are stark in their honesty, self-examination, and openness. Without ditching the ribald, spit-in-your-eye attitude of her previous recordings, Loveless travels into some parallel-universe, roots-bornExile In Guyville territory. These are songs that find her asserting stylistic choices, while baring themes of insatiable desire, unrequited emotion, and mistake-making on life’s crooked, fucked up path.

Here are two sides… I wonder which we’ll get (I hope both).
