Jenny Owen Youngs @ Iota

Tonight Iota was by the very personable and talented Jenny Owen Youngs, who showed she was versatile with the acoustic, electric guitar, bass as well as excellent vocals. The Beanstalk Library opened for her and were good enough to let her band borrow their strings.

Jenny's beats were honest and contagious, and she was complimented by the bass and drummer backup from Chris Kuffner and Elliot Jacobson.

Her songs were varied, from upbeat melodies to songs about breakups, divorce, and friends with cancer. One of her tunes was recently featured on "Weeds". I think I enjoyed her personality and humility the most.
