Valerie June’s 2013 record Pushin’ Against a Stone caught indie music off-guard: a blueswoman from Memphis-via-Williamsburg who sings like Joanna Newsom and rocks like the Black Keys? (Indeed, Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach co-wrote and produced the record.) Her live performance is beautiful and unadorned, and we are proud to welcome her to Massachusetts for the first time.
