Susto w/ Rae Fitzgerald & Geri X 

When: Wed., Feb. 5 2014
Price: $5

Americana, 9 p.m.

Missouri-based roots revivalist Rae Fitzgerald is knee-deep in her three-week-long Deep South Tour in support of her 2013 record Quitting the Machine. Fitzgerald’s lyrics are raw and intimate, inspired by her own experiences, as well as political and social issues. “My songs are intense snapshots from my personal perspective, often illuminating a truth of the human condition that most everyone can relate to,” Fitzgerald says. “I am a fantastical historian.” One particular Quitting the Machine song, the lead-off track “Revival,” is a high-energy Depression-era-esque anthem about class warfare. The song is indicative of Fitzgerald’s fascination with the things that pits one person against another. “I use a lot of biblical imagery even though I’m not religious, because religion is something that deeply motivates and divides people,” she says. After the Deep South Tour ends, Fitzgerald plans to head back into the recording studio with her eyes on a new LP in the summer. —Kalyn Oyer WEDNESDAY
