April Smith has some of the most powerful pipes in all of music, and she’s bringing them to San Diego. The New Jersey native and her trusty band, The Great Picture Show, have just announced that they’re stopping at M-Theory Records on April 25 for a special in-store performance.
Most artists who play the beloved Mission Hills record shop play proper shows in town later that night, but Smith and Co. are for some reason breaking with that tradition. This means that if you want to get an earful of the singer’s immense talent and charm, you’ll have to head over to M-Theory for the 7:00pm performance. And, seeing as how her album, Songs For a Sinking Ship, made our oh-so-prestigious Best of 2010 list, we’d strongly recommend you do just that.
The San Diego excursion comes near the end of April Smith and the Great Picture Show’s month-long tour, which has them supporting the fast-rising soul men (and woman) of Fitz and the Tantrums. You can see the full list of tour dates below.
