You may not have noticed -- although I don't know how that's possible -- but Denton-based singer-songwriter Sarah Jaffe is having quite the moment. The burst of publicity is all thanks to her superb sophomore full-length, The Body Wins, which has earned praise from nearly every media outlet in North Texas, as well as some little ol' publication called The New York Times. Jaffe, rightfully, will bask in a little hometown adoration Saturday at the Granada Theater, with support from Zhora and Kirtland Records label mate John Singer Sergeant (aka musical man about town John Dufilho). Tickets are $16-$29.
Damage from the tornadoes that ravaged North Texas last month is still being cleaned up, and local promoter Spune is lending a helping hand. Colorado troubadour Gregory Alan Isakov headlines a performance at the Church of the Incarnation in Dallas at 8 p.m. Monday. He'll be joined by local folk act the Fox and the Bird for an evening built around lovingly crafted tunes and a great cause. Tickets are $10 in advance, $13 at the door, and all proceeds will benefit the church's disaster relief fund and its DFW tornado victims relief initiatives. More info at spunetickets.com.
