Eight Gigs: Sandra Dolores
Fri., Jan. 2, 8 p.m., Shine, $5
Day two of the new year is a time many of us stop for a second and take a breather before jumping into that resolution to save more money, drink less and learn French. But anyone familiar with the local scene knows that few musicians hustle as hard as singer-songwriter Sandra Dolores, who during any given week seems to be playing a good number of the city's music venues either as a solo act or as part of the duo Cover Girls. Dolores' style, both on vocals and guitar, are pleasantly evocative of Joni Mitchell. Ruby Faye and Meghan Bone join her in the night's lineup. 1400 E Street, www.sandradolores.com.
