Concert Notice: Lesbian Nashville crooner Steff Mahan on Thursday night at Opening Bell

Just a quick note that out singer Steff Mahan comes to town Thursday. Looks like she’s just on the road hitting up cities here and there as opposed to supporting a new release. Her last album, Never a Long Way Home, came out in 2009, but these indie artists likely find more scratch and satisfaction on the road anyway.

Her site keeps mentioning alt-country, but her sound is far more Americana and roots in the vein of Emmylou Harris or Lucinda Williams. And the intimate space of Opening Bell is likely ideal for her sound. If you’re hankering for live music with some queer flair, then head on down to the South Side.

Opening Bell, 1409 S Lamar St. 8 p.m. $10. Click here for more information.
