Last week NPR posted audio from a live set with Zola Jesus at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. Her beautiful voice flows like smoke, wrapping delicately around every snare pop and cymbal ride. Almost tribal drum work keeps your heart pounding. The only bad thing about this recording is how bad it makes me wish I were there. Or how much I wish I was seeing her tonight in Chapel Hill at Local 506. Fortunately Audrey will be there getting photos of the whole thing for us. Any readers in the Triangle, listen and take note. Tonight you get one of the most astounding performers of our day.
