Molly Nilsson
Not only is Molly Nilsson a prolific singer-songwriter, but she also owns a record label: Dark Skies Association. But when she plays Barboza expect tracks from her eighth album, Twenty Twenty, which drops next month—a vibrant collection of 80s-era new age, with gritty, introspective lyrics. See “Days of Dust” for evidence, a wistfully upbeat track off of the new album. Barboza, $13–$15
