Ida Maria Plays Spaceland Monday (and Viper Room on Tuesday)
I stayed in all week last week to fight my cold, yet it still lingers.

Monday 1/12/09
[Recommended] Rocco DeLuca / Ida Maria / HoneyHoney / Jillian Hank Leigh @ Spaceland (Free) – This is Rocco’s residency, but I’d expect a ton of people there to see Ida Maria too. She’s an edgy Norwegian singer-songwriter with a lot of positive press. I heard it was packed last week without Ida Maria, so I’d get there early.
[Recommended] Robert Francis / The Horsethieves / Red Cortez / Evan Way (Parson Red Heads) @ the Echo (Free) – I’ve heard Francis is an incredibly talented singer-songwriter. Tonight’s probably the strongest bill with local favorites Red Cortez and Evan Way from the Parson Red Heads.
