Josephine Foster Tonight at Betty's

Posted By on Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 9:54 AM

Honestly, we would have told you about this sooner, but we just got wind of it ourselves: Ex-pat folk musician and vocalist Josephine Foster, who's been kicking around Spain these last few years with her flamenco guitar-playin' husband Victor Herrero, will be playing at Betty's Bar and Grill tonight. As you can imagine, people who live in southern Spain don't play around here often, so if you're at all inclined, you should probably make it out to Charlotte Ave. this evening.

Foster's got a voice that sounds like it's being channeled from another era, like it should be unfurling from a Victor phonograph horn or a crackling tube radio. Her album Graphic as a Star sets the poems of Emily Dickinson to spare, pastoral instrumentation and that clarion, transporting voice.

Sharing the bill tonight are Amy Marcantel of Forrest Bride; The Cherry Blossoms; and New Pangaea. Doors at 9 p.m., show at 10 p.m., sliding scale of $5-$7.
