United Kingdom-based band Big Joanie is grabbing the attention of fans and music writers on both sides of the pond with debut LP “Sistahs.”

The indie punk trio, all women of color, is comprised of singer-guitarist Stephanie Phillips, bassist Estella Adeyeri and drummer Chardine Taylor-Stone. They’re getting critical praise for their sound, which is classic girl-group pop like The Ronettes fused with riot grrrl punk rock like The Breeders.


It seems like every genre of music from country to hard rock has gotten in on the holiday-concert game, almost to the point where nothing seems exciting, unique or revolutionary anymore. Thankfully, Everett Bradley’s Holidelic is running Santa’s sleigh through the funk gauntlet to get rumps shaking yet again this holiday season.

Jakes Shears, best known as the lead singer for the internationally renowned and openly gay pop-glam group Scissor Sisters, is on the road after releasing his debut eponymous solo album and autobiography, “Boys Keep Swinging.”

Ashley Phillips brings her voice and guitar stylings to International House’s Ibrahim Theater for the 2018-19 season of “International Journeys,” a collection of artistic performances that reflect the theme “Origin Stories.”
