Nashville-based Americana singer/songwriter Madi Diaz has played a handful of ginormous shows in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection since the August 2021 release of History of a Feeling, her ANTI- debut, which NPR Music called, “freaking superb,” and which even earned a Tweet from Kathleen Hanna. Last November Madi opened a sold-out show for Caamp at The Fillmore, and this April she opened both of Waxahatchee’s already-legendary sold-out homecoming shows at Union Transfer. However, tonight she kicks off a month-long headlining tour that will have her playing Johnny Brenda’s this coming Wednesday, October 26th, her first headlining show in the 215 in more than half a decade.
Earlier this year, Madi Diaz released Same History, New Feelings, a four-song EP of collaborative reworkings of songs from History of a Feeling featuring Waxahatchee, Angel Olsen, Courtney Marie Andrews, and Natalie Hemby. Since then, she’s released two singles, “Hangover” and, most recently, “Love Looks Different,” which dropped last month. Diaz, who produced the song herself says, “This song is combing out the last remnants of love that wasn’t working. I’m doing a final recount, laying out every piece, cutting off all the bitter and bad memories, and setting it off so I no longer carry every small detail with me.” Check out her recent lyric video for the song, get your tickets for October 26th at Johnny Brenda’s, and read Madi and I’s March chat from in-between jaunts with Waxahatchee.
