Citywide Show Report-Sierra and Andrew, Joakim Brecha, Jill Goldberg
Though the crowd was small, the energy was high at the All Asia on Wednesday, Aug. 18. Sierra and Andrew, who I first saw at Great Scott, poured the emotion from themselves into every song, capturing the audience from the word go.
Joakim Brecha are a new group to me, but with a great jazz style that fit well with the show. Some of the music carries a Swedish influence, and while I'm not sure what that means, I definitely dug it.
Jill Goldberg, on the verge of releasing her second album, finished the evening on a strong note (haha, all laugh). Backed by her band, her rock/folk tunes show she'll go far as a musician.
