Colleen Green/Cassie Ramone/Free Pizza/Emma Shepard (in the Locker Room)

When: Fri., June 24, 8 p.m. 2016

Indie singer-songwriter Colleen Green vocalizes the plight of every maturing Millennial on her most recent full-length, 2015’s I Want to Grow Up. Through her struggles to do and be the right thing, Green recognizes that just when age grants true appreciation for the self-abandonment of childhood, conscience suffocates the last bit of freedom with guilt. Green’s relatively “bare beats” style, a sort of lo-fi bedroom recording approach executed with nothing more than a drum machine, synth, and guitar, is supplemented on this album by additional instrumentation and production from members of JEFF the Brotherhood and Diarrhea Planet. This May, Green followed up the album with a self-titled EP on Infinity Cat Recordings. Playing dress up with the sound of the Ramones, she delivers deadpan plays-on- words backed by chugging elementary chord progressions, a sound she dubs “Ramones-Core.” (Bethany Kaufman)
