Nashville singer-songwriter Nikki Lane is coming to the Woodward Theater on Friday, February 20, 2015, following her great performance during last year’s MidPoint Music Festival in front of a capacity crowd. The Woodward is located at 1404 Main St., Cincinnati, Ohio in the historic neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine.

General admission tickets, $7 ADV/$10 DOS (plus applicable fees), are on sale now at MOTR Pub, Shake It Records, and all CincyTicket outlets. All shows at the Woodward are age-restricted to 21-and-up unless otherwise noted.

Lane turns the vulnerable singer-songwriter stereotype on its ear, crafting songs that crucify ex-boyfriends and have no problem with one-night stands as long as she can bolt town right after. Her cooing-yet-brutal vocals are a perfect fit with an aching, mournful guitar. Her debut album, entitled All or Nothin’ (New West Records) was produced by Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and reached number one on the Americana radio chart, where it remained for a consecutive four weeks.

Says Lane, “My songs always paint a pretty clear picture of what’s been going on in my life, so this is one moody record. There’s lot of talk of misbehaving and moving on.” The result is an album that pouts and teases whip-smart revenge tactics, over-you sentiments, and sultry discontent, all while maintaining a sense of self-strong and in control.
