Photos + Review | Courtney Barnett @ Iron Horse Music Hall

Australian musician Courtney Barnett treated fans to an intimate, acoustic performance at Northampton’s own Iron Horse Music Hall on January 24th. The show had a relaxed playfulness to it, starting with Hachiku, the supporting act, instructing the crowd to all stomp one foot at the same time to startle Courtney in the greenroom below. Courtney continued the lightheartedness with clever banter between charming songs, as well as crowd work in the form of asking for requests only to continue the setlist as planned. Her performance was captivating and moving, only made more special by the entire room singing along, most…

Song of the Week | MariaElena – Es De Fantasía

The new WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” shines brightly down on Kansas and focuses sharply on the incredible song, “Es De Fantasía,” from Wichita-based project MariaElena. It’s the first song and title track off her sophomore album released November 2019.
