Nashville indie singer/songwriter Katy Kirby could easily be bundled into that crowded talent pool that makes up Phoebe Bridgers’ Saddest Factory Records roster. Her quiet, introspective take on coffee-shop-comfortable indie folk carries an authenticity thanks to its relationship perspectives, a quality which has almost become an indie trope for singer/songwriters who currently dominate today’s college music. 

Her latest album, Blue Raspberry (2024, Anti-), is a “exegesis of Kirby’s first queer relationship,” according to the one-sheet. “Exegesis,” by the way, means critical explanation or interpretation of a text, especially of scripture, according to Google. Yes, I looked it up, along with “vicissitude,” which was used in the Pitchfork review, as in “Blue Raspberry proves that Kirby is particularly dialed in on these vicissitudes of intimacy. With a little fine-tuning, she could transcend.” I’m still not sure what the writer meant, however, though she gave the record a 7.4 rating. 

Anyway, Katy Kirby plays tonight at Reverb Lounge. Joining her is New York singer/songwriter Allegra Krieger, whose fourth album, I Keep My feet on the Fragile Plane, is a collection of quiet acoustic reflections released by Double Double Whammy last year. Omaha singer/songwriter Owen Justice opens the show at 8 p.m. $18.
