The Stranger's arts and culture editor Megan Seling writes: "Jenn Champion has been making music for more than 20 years, both solo and as a member of Seattle’s saddest misspelled indie band Carissa’s Wierd, and she’s released music through some of the Northwest’s coolest record labels including Suicide Squeeze and Hardly Art. Last year, she did something she’s never done before: Put out her music her damn self. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, with which she raised more than $40,000, Champion released The Last Night of Sadness. It’s no surprise nearly 500 people contributed to hear the results—few songwriters do sadness as well as Champion can. Case in point, the first single, “Famous.” It’s a moody, mid-tempo dance track that sounds like a disillusioned Taylor Swift on downers. The synth tries to sparkle through Champion’s foggy memories of a difficult childhood and mistakes made along the way. Gloomy, contemplative—it’s the perfect music for fall. But also summer, winter, and spring, too, because for folks like Champion (and myself, if we’re being honest) sadness isn’t seasonal, it’s forever." Champion will perform a stripped-down acoustic set alongside former Clarissa's Wierd bandmate Mat Brooke.
