What to Do Tonight: Jonatha Brooke



In yo face!
  • "In yo face!"

Jonatha Brooke's career began with the Story, a folk-pop duo she assembled with a college friend in the ’80s. She went out on her own in 1994 with her debut album Plumb and a follow-up, 10 Cent Wings. But after getting dropped by her label, Brooke chose the DIY route, self-releasing records. In the new millennium, she's released three studio albums and a live CD/DVD, recorded two songs for Disney’s Return to Neverland, covered songs by James Taylor, the Alan Parsons Project and the Beach Boys, wrote songs for boy-band vets Nick Lachey and J.C. Chasez, and set music to some of Woody Guthrie’s unreleased words for her latest album, 2008‘s The Works. She performs at 8 p.m. at the Kent Stage. Tickets: $10. —Brian Baker
