Jenny Owen Youngs w/ Bess Rogers & Allison Weiss at Iota, March 8 8:30 pm

Jenny Owen Youngs, the New Jersey born singer/songwriter known for her R-rated single "F*@k Was I", her "I Got Knocked Up by Jenny Owen Youngs" t-shirts, and her collaboration with the group Bell Horses, will be bringing her "Spring Break Forever" tour to Iota Club and Cafe on Monday, March 8 at 8:30.  For a $12 cover, you'll catch the lovely and talented Ms. Youngs joined by the equally lovely and talented Bess Rogers (who features prominently in the "Last Person" video above) & Alison Weiss.

All joking aside, Jenny's most recent album, Transmitter Failure, was one of my favorites of 2009.  She left the novelty act behind and demonstrated remarkable growth, both as a lyricist and musician.  Producer Dan Romer also helped put together an album with a great sound, incorporating Jenny's power pop and alt-country leanings into a stunningly cohesive whole.  The title track of the album is a lovely song, strident and strong and vulnerable with a lush arrangement surrounding Jenny's voice.  You should definitely come out on Monday to check out this show.
