With pluck

Powerful yet coy vocals and astute songwriting are the definitive traits in folk balladeer Anna Vogelzang’s music. And as for evidence of her industry cred, she works with some of current music’s kick ass players. On her recent release, Canary in a Coal Mine, she employed Franz Nicolay on accordion (formerly of The Hold Steady), Brian Viglione on drums (Dresden Dolls), Todd Sickafoose on upright bass (Righteous Babe/Ani DiFranco), while taking on the ukulele, banjo, and kalimba herself. Pat + Sasha opens.

Friday 2/8 Free, 8pm. Blue Moon Diner, 512 W. Main St. 980-6666.
