Saturday To-Do: Jenny Owen Youngs / Jukebox the Ghost

Posted By on Fri, May 15, 2009 at 1:58 PM


9:30 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

Ah, indie bills. So often you overload us with dire, fill us full on irony or, worse, too much sun. Rare is the concert, like this one, with so much to offer. In one corner, we've got Jenny Owen Youngs, a dreamy, red-haired folk-y with a strong alto. Her formula, which she's mined on two EPs and two full-lengths (one comes out May 26), involves gentle melodies and dark lyrics. Somewhat off formula, but using a similar juxtaposition, Youngs had an indie hit several years back with her deadpan take of Nelly's “Hot in Herre.” In the other corner, and serving as the night's headliner, Philly trio Jukebox the Ghost specializes in uplifting. Their pop is one of big three-part harmonies and mini-rock opera bombast. Local singer/songwriter Jessica Carder opens. The concert is open to those 18+.
