Joni Mitchell

  • Maddie Poppe: “I always try to stay true to myself. I don’t like to follow anyone’s path.” (11/30 at WCL)

    It’s Thanksgiving (Happy Turkey Day!), which means it’s just about time to kick into Christmas mode (I realize a few of you tend to be premature about this, but we won’t hold that against you.)  And I can’t think of a better way to do this than coming out...
  • Madison Cunningham, Feeling Surreal (10/24 at JB’s)

    “As my first headlining tour, I set manageable expectations, but I’ve been utterly blown away,” says Madison Cunningham.  She’s chatting with me over the phone, en route to her next gig.  Although just on her first headlining tour, the folk-pop singer/songwriter already has a laundry list of achievements of...
  • Bella White Talks Teendom, Touring, and Joni Mitchell (MilkBoy SHOW CANCELLED)

    *Update: Sadly, and very much at the last minute, Bella White’s show 8/26 at MilkBoy has been cancelled due to health concerns at the venue. “All of Joni Mitchell’s earliest albums are my favorite of her stuff.  She got more honest as she progressed, but a lot of emotional...

  • I M U R, “Shitty is Pretty”

  • Rising Appalachia: “Expect equal measures of dance party to ballads.” (Thurs. at WCL)

    We’ve always been big fans of “sister acts” here at PHILTHY and there’s none that we’re more excited about at the moment than World-Folk duo Rising Appalachia, led by sisters Chloe Smith and Leah Song.  The band have been making music for more than a decade and are currently...
  • Arc Iris, Getting Back to The Intimate, Tonight at MilkBoy

    We’ve gotten to know Providence dream pop trio Arc Iris pretty well over the past few years.  We first fell in love with their 2016 LP, which I characterized as “A quirkily poignant postmodern electro cabaret,” and have thoroughly enjoyed several stops they’ve made in the City of Brotherly...
