Saturday, April 21, 2012 | 8:00 PM Myron R. Szold Music & Dance Hall :: 4545 N. Lincoln Ave. $15 General Public/$13 Old Town School Members/$11 Seniors & Children BOX OFFICE: 773.728.6000 There's drama when Ami Saraiya and her band, The Outcome, take the stage. It's a dark atmosphere, but it swings baby — a worldly staging of folk punk and jazz cabaret. And amongst the accordion, the violin and the guitars, it's Ami's sultry voice that recalls Piaf and Holiday which takes the spotlight. Then, there are the song-stories — often saturnine, often employing magical realism. "A sound that's equal parts Feist, Billie Holiday, postmodern folk, Rufus Wainwright and '60s pop." - CD Baby "...underneath the sophisticated textures of country mysticism is a steely edge that suggests a bottom dropping out at any moment. While the music is continually seductive, its core appeal is Claiborne's voice, which is as nuanced and filled with tremors as those of Rufus Wainwright and Jeff Buckley." - No Depression "These are philosophical songs where the music itself captures the beauty and wonder as much as the lyrics." - The Big Takeover
