Nicole Atkins and The Black Sea at City Winery
Having only a passing familiarity with Nicole Atkins's music I was expecting something... quieter? Only when she performed a self-described "old" song, or a solo, was as poetic and soulful as I was expecting. The rest was surprisingly close to being a rock concert. Funny, most musicians do the opposite: they mellow out over the years. At this rate in ten years she'll be singing death metal.
