Music minute

Posted 8:27am on Wednesday, Dec. 05, 2012

The East Coast continues to dig out from the damage wreaked by Superstorm Sandy, and among the many businesses affected by the storm was independent record label Norton Records, whose Brooklyn warehouse was severely flooded. To help the label recover, benefits are popping up across the country, including one at 2 p.m. Sunday at Magnolia Motor Lounge. Admission is just five bucks, and the all-local lineup is a great one: Casa Magnetica, Street Arabs, Ape Hangers, War Party, Oddlot, Year of the Bear and Dove Hunter are scheduled to perform. If you'd like to contribute but can't make the gig at Magnolia Motor Lounge, you can find more info at nortonrecords.com.

Fort Worth singer-songwriter Kristina Morland will join forces with Breaking Light (aka Burleson-based musician Kavin Allenson) for a show at 8 p.m. Friday at Buon Giorno Coffee in downtown Fort Worth. Breaking Light has a sound it describes as "improvise[d] guitar and loops live, using multi-delays and E-bow, found sounds and other weirdness," while Morland will share some of her exquisitely delicate folk-inclined music.
