Lindsay Fuller at the Evening Muse tonight (11/15/2012)

Posted By on Thu, Nov 15, 2012 at 8:22 AM

On her third full-length, You, Anniversary, Alabama-raised Seattle native Lindsay Fuller shoots for the same dark poetic fires burning in other female artists like Thalia Zedek or Shannon Wright, though Fuller's songs are less shy about their pop and Americana roots. But there's more Southern Gothic in Fuller's songwriting, which is why the bleak-but-redemptive works of Nick Cave are another touchstone you hear in conjunction with Fuller. That suits Fuller's narrative vein, as do the specters of late poets, writers and friends that haunt sometimes explicitly, sometimes not her songs. Besides the W.S. Merwin poem that inspired the LP title track and an Edgar Allen Poe name-drop, the mortality-occupied storytelling also conjures images of Southern artists of all stripes from O'Connor and Faulkner to 16 Horsepower and Vic Chesnutt, as our transience and frailty play out tragically in Fuller's songs. With Lucy Wainwright Roche and Kaia Wilson. $12-$15. Nov. 15, 8 p.m. Evening Muse, 3227 N. Davidson St. 704-376-3737.
