Grace Askew at The Green RoomAugust 30, 2019, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Join us at The Green Room for a performance by Memphis musician Grace Askew, celebrating her first full-length album release in five years.
The 12-song culmination of writing and performing a new song every day for over 500 days straight, Denim & Diesel is a raw and vulnerable collection of stories about the struggles of daily life. The album was self-produced and recorded at Grace’s home — a.k.a “Tumbleweed Ranch,” a creaky, old, tin-roofed ranch house on 100 acres in Eads, TN, and features two co-writes with Mike Doughty (of ’90s cult band “Soul Coughing).
Jana Jana, one of Memphis’ hottest, new female-led bands, is fronted by Jana Misener (founding member of Memphis Dawls and Giant Bear). With live cello loops and soaring vocals, Jana Jana’s soul-inspired indie rock is an orchestrated tempest.
