Local residents Joe Donahue and Matt Michaels started this concert Series as a way to bring national Americana acts to SOMA and, whenever possible, have a local act open. It’s a way to see great music without having to travel to NYC, and also creates an opportunity for both bands to reach new audiences. The Elks Club is a great, intimate venue for these shows and the Elks have been incredible partners in the Series.
Please join me for the second show in the SOMAmericana Music Series FRIDAY AUGUST 28, 2015 at the Elks Lodge in South Orange (220 Prospect St., South Orange, NJ). We’re bringing in Jess Klein from Austin, Texas and featuring special guests and local legends, Stuff Bros.
Jess Klein was a finalist in this year’s Kerrville New Folk Festival and brings a gritty, bluesy sensibility to the singer/songwriter thing. She also has a song featured in the recently released movie Results, starring Guy Pearce, Giovanni Ribisi and others. Check her out on Spotify or jessklein.com.
Doors open at 7:30, tickets are $20, with all proceeds going to the artist. You can buy tickets in advance at http://www.soelks.com or cash at the door. And, there’s a bar!
Save the trip to NYC, ditch the overpriced booze and long ride, and see some world class music at home!! She rocks, I promise.
