AJA MONET
, 8 p.m.
Hailing from East NY, Brooklyn, Aja Monet is an internationally renowned singer and poet. Her voice is unforgettable. Her words, grounded in familiar sights and sounds, uproot the vivid imagery of everyday life with an impressionistic approach worthy of her last name. A swirl of hopes and dreams, scenes from childhood, and philosophical ponderings coalesce in an intimate night of music and spoken word in Club B-10.

JOSH RITTER
, 8 p.m.
Idaho-native singer and guitarist Josh Ritter has a literary disposition and an affinity for the old-guard likes of Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, and Paul Simon that led The New York Times to place him "among the cream of the young singer-songwriter crop." His songs are playfully erudite, equally dense with clever metaphor and whimsical turns of phrase. He's here in an intimate acoustic setup to try out new material for an as-yet unnamed forthcoming album. “About six months ago I was hit by a song on the New York Thruway," he recently wrote. "The whole thing. Verses, bridge, a witty one-liner or two. Nothing like that had ever happened with such force. It was the first raindrop in a thunderstorm that I’m thankful continues unabated. I don’t normally go in for showing songs before they’re fully done, but what the hell, you only live once.”
