Tonight’s Plans: Marcella Simien avec Amis
Celebrate the week's halfway point with a free show by Marcella Rene Simien at the Mollie Fontaine Lounge.
Marcella's one-woman performances as Fille Catatonique are mesmerising – she writhes, shimmies and stomps her way through traditional Creole songs, her own songs and slowed-down, tarted-up covers of rock'n'roll songs (if you ever get the chance to hear her play "The Way I Walk" by the Cramps, you'll know what I mean).
Tonight, though, she's playing with friends Ben Bauermeister on drums and Chris Owen on guitar.

Where: Mollie Fontaine Lounge, 679 Adams Ave.
What time: 9 p.m. until they get tired
How much: Free
How old do I have to be: At least 21.
