Smart Bets: Emily Easterly

Brooklyn-to-Asheville transplant Emily Easterly is model gorgeous, a formidable songwriter and able to pull off plenty of guitar bad-assery to boot. Her debut album was released in 2001, followups include Heart Comma Heart ("inspired by Neil Young, the Beatles and Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar") and '09's The Only Two On Earth. In a further bid for world domination, Easterly has been honing her drum skills. And a Tame Impala cover. Which she'll play at The Lab on Wednesday, Feb. 13 (Casey Murdock also performs.) 9:30 p.m., $6. Photo by Rich Orris.
