Fri., Feb. 01, Aly Tadros
Shine, 8 p.m., $5
A Texas native, singer-songwriter Aly Tadros left her hometown of Laredo at 17 and went on to live in Spain, Turkey and Egypt, picking up both the linguistic and musical currents of the respective countries. Her eclectic, melodic music reflects her globe-trotting experiences, and in tandem with her sweet vocals, the end result is something like Ani DiFranco on a happy day. Tadros is on a nationwide tour in support of the January release of The Fits, a pleasantly low-fi album that would be an apt accompaniment for some world adventuring of your own. 1400 E Street, www.alytadros.com.
