Music Around Town, Seasonal Special Happenings

Lydia Loveless

When: Thu., Nov. 6, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Like any kid who grew up in the ’90s, singer-songwriter Lydia Loveless was fed a steady diet of commercial radio and MTV. She eventually gravitated toward what she calls "that horrible pop-punk wave" of the early 2000s. But after moving to Columbus, where she’s now based, she began to embrace a different style of music that was much grittier than the pop-punk that was popular at the time. On her first album, The Only Man, she embraced a more traditional country sound and for her second album, 2012's Indestructible Machine, she adopted a grungier sound. With her new latest album, Somewhere Else, she embraces her country and pop roots more heartily than she did on Indestructible Machine. The guitars still have some grit but the album is a bit more polished, something that's apparent from the opening tune, "Really Wanna See You." Live, she likes it loud and grunge-y too. (Niesel)
