Rounding out this evening are V.V. Brown at Nectar, City Center at the Comet and the Church at the Triple Door. Britain’s V.V. Brown has been receiving tons of acclaim for her debut album, Travelling Like the Light. I adore her song Shark in the Water particularly. City Center hails from New York, and should bring much oomph to the Comet. Those prolific Australians, the Church, will be so gorgeous at the Triple Door. They have made 23 eps and lps altogether.
