Thurs., Jan. 17, Reggie Ginn
Naked Lounge Downtown, 8 p.m., $7
Reggie Ginn started off performing in tiny cafes and coffee shops, belting out covers, such as the Cranberries' “Zombie” and even a handful of her originals, including the song “Smile.” Now, the singer-songwriter and seasoned keyboardist entertains music lovers with her melancholy ballads in venues from Sacramento to Los Angeles. She released her latest album in November 2011, Passion in Perspective, which is available on iTunes and Amazon.com. If curiosity has you struck, Ginn's voice ranges from the softer notes of Sarah McLachlan balanced with the angst of Dolores O'Riordan. Lindsey Pavao, former contestant on The Voice, and Moot's Brian Biehle will also perform. 1111 H Street, www.reggieginn.com.
