The intimate energy and raw emotion of Jolie Holland’s experimental live sets have recently garnered the attention of musical purists, the press, and even artists like Tom Waits and Sage Francis. Her permutation of folk, country, rock, jazz, and blues is meticulously blended and though her sound is distinctly original, a close listen will find Neil Young and Lou Reed influences seeping into her tunes. On tour in support of her sixth album Wine Dark Sea, Holland boasts her maturity as a songwriter and performer, and stays true to her Americana roots with her stripped-down-but-rowdy quartet. Shy Hunters open.

Saturday 8/16. $12, 8pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
