Regardless of which instruments she's accompanied by, Mirah is consistently stunning live. But it's hard to know the depth of her powers until you've heard her voice wrap itself around a string section. In an era where songwriters bring in the strings excessively and unnecessarily, Mirah's songs seem written with chamber arrangements in mind; they're dynamic, spacious, and quietly precise. For this tour she teams up with the ever-prolific composer Jherek Bischoff, whose work extends from David Byrne collaborations to Kronos Quartet commissions to producing Xiu Xiu's upcoming album of songs from Twin Peaks. Both Mirah and Bischoff will be bringing a mix of new and old songs to the table while a string quartet backs them up. The last time Mirah toured with a chamber group behind her was nearly a decade ago, so don't miss this rare opportunity. JOSHUA JAMES AMBERSON Also see My, What a Busy Week!
