When: Thu., Aug. 24, 7-9 p.m.
Atlanta-based singer/songwriter Lia Menaker is passing through the Cleveland area as part of a 2-month east to west coast tour. With lyrics described by critics as “edgy poetry” and a voice described as both “soulful and haunting” and “soothing and accessible,” Lia Menaker’s music is a unique blend of pop, rock, and blue-eyed soul—with a dash of theatrical flair. Think Joni Mitchell meets Fiona Apple in an old cabaret club. Come to The Root Cafe in Lakewood from 7-9pm (FREE show) to hear Menaker perform original music from her debut album Animal Behavior, along with several other unreleased tunes.
