Head down to the 400 Bar any Thursday in February to check out the new solo project by Planes for Spaces lead singer Joe January, an inventive and talented young musician. In contrast to Planes for Spaces' hyper, atmospheric mood-rock, January's solo music is bluesy and sparse, leaving plenty of room for his reflective lyrics to shine through. January is holding down the weekly residence at the 400 as he gears up for the release of his forthcoming album, Broken Record, which he anticipates will be released this spring. A rotating cast of local musicians will join him during his residency, with Jimmy Peterson of Bellwether on the bill for the all but the first week in February. 18+.
