Devil’s Tune

By: Laurie Gallardo

The clinking glasses, perhaps a wisp of smoke, and the faraway stares of lovelorn people whose minds are preoccupied, for better or worse…that may very well be the cinematic, romanticized image that comes to mind when one thinks of a Piano Lounge. Perhaps some of these elements come into play at the Historic Scoot Inn‘s event tonight. But most importantly, it’s all about the performance by Datura.

Jessica Pyrdsa is the soul-jazz artist behind the Datura moniker, delivering a sultry mix of jazz, pop, soul and R&B that doesn’t necessarily adhere to a specific genre. It’s more about blurring the lines and stirring up those feelings that just won’t quit. Datura’s often backed by a band of rotating musicians, turning each set into a unique performance.

Don’t miss Datura tonight at the Scoot Inn,1308 E. 4th. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. Raise your glass to the “Devil’s Tune.” Recommended.
