Heart unburdened: In going it alone, Rachel Ries found herself in a new community and nurtured it into the musical project Her Crooked Heart. Ries was touring for a solo album, going through a divorce, and had “leapt into the untethered unknown” when she got busy writing the transformative song cycle that defines her new release, To Love To Leave To Live, which she backed with her siblings and a talented group of collaborators she met on the road. The result is a blend of acoustic and synth instrumentation that encompasses a genre-defying story of transformation. Diane Cluck and Devon Sproule open the show with individual sets.

Tuesday 8/20. $12-15, 7pm. The Front Porch, 221 E. Water St. 806-7062.
