9:30 p.m., White Water Tavern. Donations.

Oklahoma songcraft Samantha Crain has garnered a fair bit of attention lately from Rolling Stone, Paste Magazine, New York Times and heavy-hitting songwriting circles for her billowy, dust-bowl take on literary song. A bit Cat Power, a bit Erskine Caldwell, her music is dusted with a magical realism that's amplified by her signature, contemplative voice, an airy timbre that seems to drape from the ceiling and glide on her effortlessly melodic country-tinged backing band, the Midnight Shivers. Maybe that description is a bit over-versified, but she deserves it. Her gorgeously crafted music takes on a timeless rural sound with a quiet rollick that deserves repeated listening. Intrigued? Hopefully so. Hop on YouTube and check out “Get the Fever Out” and “The River” then make it to White Water, a perfect place as any for such a show.
