Amy Ray at Iota Cafe

In the past dozen years, Amy Ray has released several solo albums in between Indigo Girls records and tours, all informed more by her punk predilection than the sweet harmonious folk bliss of her work with Emily Saliers. As a solo artist Ray is best when she finds the common ground in between punk and folk: usually soft rock, edgy pop or driving country, and passionate tunes that are often both hard and tender, heated yet still calm. She does this more often than not on her impressive new set Lung of Love, which she’s now touring to support. Kaia Wilson opens. Tonight, Friday, April 13, at 9 p.m. IOTA Club and Cafe, 2832 Wilson Blvd., Arlington. Tickets are $18. Call 703-522-8340 or visit iotaclubandcafe.com.
