Tues., May 28, Tele Novella
Bows & Arrows, 8 p.m., $10
This Tuesday, Sacramento rejoices. Natalie Ribbons returns to Sacramento with her new band Tele Novella. For anyone who's lived in a cave the past decade, she was the singer for the much-loved, local cabaret-pop duo Agent Ribbons. A little while back, the band relocated to Austin, Texas. Now she's formed a new group which is a psychedelic-pop quartet. Ribbons' clever songwriting is still present, but the package is a sunnier and catchier one. It's only released two songs so far, and already it's getting some buzz on music blogs—partially because it's Ribbons' new project, but also because it is just damn good. Get there early. This show will sell out. 1815 19th Street, www.twitter.com/tele_novella.
