Tonight in live music: Johnnyswim, Robby Krieger, American Babies, David Bromberg Quintet + more
JohnnyswimSome of the best folk songwriting is crafted by artists who really seem love each other (see: Fleetwood Mac). Once you hear the sonic tenderness of Amanda Sudano (whose mom is Donna Summer) and Abner Ramirez, it comes as no surprise to learn the LA-based songsmiths who perform as Johnnyswim are married. Their blend of simple acoustic instrumentals with rousing vocal interplay lends itself to an incredibly intimate sound that still feels capable of filling an arena.
