Thanks to Ann Arbor’s Sonic Lunch summer concert series, you can take your lunch break with Adia Victoria, the Nashville-based singer-songwriter who will make you rethink the way you hear the blues. Victoria’s whispery vocals wield a sense of power against dark and demanding blues-infused instrumentals. Earlier this year, she dropped her sophomore album, Silences — a haunting, internal examination of the struggles of having grown up as a woman of color in the American South. Don’t get her twisted, though — songs like “Different Kind of Love” and “Heathen” will get you on your feet. Erin Zindle of Ann Arbor-based the Ragbirds is also on the bill.
Adia Victoria will perform wsg Erin Zindle at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 27, at Liberty Plaza; 255 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor; soniclunch.com. Event is free.
