Singer-Songwriter Jackie Bristow

From the event description:

At once heartfelt and sophisticated, Jackie Bristow combines subtle but beautiful melodies and hooks that hypnotize the listener, demand complete surrender and then stick around with the backbone of a real friend. Born in New Zealand but then transplanted to Australia and now the United States with a guitar, suitcase and songs, Jackie travels light but packs a heavy punch. For this show at Red Light Cafe in Atlanta, Jackie is joined by special guests, and Atlanta’s own, Konner Scott and Ryan Winslow.

When: Thursday, May 16, 8 p.m.
Where: Red Light Cafe, 553-1 Amsterdam Ave. NE
Price: $5
