Megan Jean & the KFB, Jordan & the Sphinx

When: Thu., Dec. 19, 9 p.m. 2013

Megan Jean, the leader and principal namesake of the duo Megan Jean and the Klay Family Band, possesses a big, brassy voice. She swings it to and fro, like a giant charm dangling around her neck. Though more wailer than crooner, Megan Jean knows finesse, too—she's seemingly studied the Dresden Dolls' Weimar-inflected vaudeville sway. She moves between guitar and washboard, while Byrne Klay plays upright bass and banjo, providing ballast to their gypsy folk, roots-swing and somber mountain-country vacillation. They've got obvious chops, but the songwriting doesn't really catch, and that occasionally limits their impact. —Chris Parker
