Fri, Aug 27, Lindsey Cook
Beatnik Studios, 6 p.m., no cover
Sacramento, CA 95811
Lindsey Cook’s voice was made for indie and folk love songs. So it’s a good thing she found her calling. Sacramento-based Cook channels songstresses such as Rachael Yamagata and Regina Spektor, displaying a kind of romantic innocence blanketing what actually lies beneath: talent, experience and strength. Her songs migrate from melancholy love-lost songs, such as “Especially With You,” to coy and flirtatious love songs, such as “I Say.” Cook’s performance is part of Beatnik Studios’ inaugural Last Friday, a free family-friendly music and art show that will be held the last Friday of every month. 2421 17th Street, www.myspace.com/lindseycooksmusic.
