Allison Crutchfield & the Fizz, Blizzard Babies, Hawley, What Gives 

When: Mon., Oct. 3, 8 p.m. 2016
Price: $12, $10 in advance
Since forming the pop-punk-flavored P.S. Eliot in 2007, the Philly-via-Alabama Crutchfield twins have carved out their own little scene of endearing, beautifully written indie rock. When Katie went solo with her Waxahatchee project in 2010, focusing on minimal, heart-wrenching confessionals, Allison launched the poppy emo-throwback band Swearin’ before eventually going solo in 2014. Her first album, Lean in to It, is a self-released seven-song EP of bedroom-recorded, nostalgia-fueled, drum-machine-driven indie pop that’s heavily indebted to midwestern lo-fi kings Guided by Voices—it’s catchy, cute, and quaint. However, for her majestic brand-new LP, expected out early next year on indie giant Merge, Allison steps up her game with sweeping, mature, uplifting indie rock and a two-person backing band (the Fizz) to boot. Over the last few years, fans, critics, and festival crowds have pored over Katie’s Waxahatchee, but judging by the sounds of Allison’s new record, it seems like this could be her time to shine.
