Dougher, whom many know from her other projects (former member of the Lookers and the Crabs; current member of Cadallaca, along with Sleater-Kinney's Corin Tucker), writes songs that seem kinda clunky the first time you hear them.

This is one of those itsy shows that promises heaven for those willing to make the effort. Don't miss it.
