Thurs., May 09, Lauren Cole Norton
Crocker Art Museum, 5 p.m., $5-$10
Catch local (by way of Ireland) singer Lauren Cole Norton as part of a Crocker Art Museum program called Art Mix/Chain Reaction. Part of the May is Bike Month campaign, the event also features a bicycle show, a bike-themed mural by Danielle Fodor, a dance performance by Core Dance Collective and tunes by the Phono Select Sound System. Norton, who also fronts local group the Souterrain, will sing and perform spoken-word. Her unique sound combines aspects of Irish folk music, Americana, jazz and indie-pop—hinting at influences such as Lisa Hannigan and Norah Jones. She recorded her solo debut What Ails You in 2012 and is working on a follow-up. 216 O Street, www.facebook.com/laurencolenorton.
