Gig City Goes Country

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

This weekend Gig City is once again taking over Barking Legs Theater. Lindi Ortega and Andrew Combs will play a double concert together on Saturday at 8 p.m.

Review for Lindi Ortega and Andrew Combs:

Lindi Ortega is a Canadian country singer who beautifully plays music that captures raw emotion with earnest and sincere lyricism. She will be joined by Andrew Combs, a spectacular musical storyteller who paints gorgeous pictures with his bluesy-country style. This concert will be part of their southeastern tour. Don't miss out on this duo whose mastery of alt-country is unbelievable.

October will be a month for music with performances from Mike Bagetta Trio on Thursday, Oct. 5, Mike Compton and Joe Newberry on Friday, Oct. 13, and Burton Greene on Sunday, Oct. 22.
