SONiA and disappear fear

Saturday, December 10; Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue)


If the Indigo Girls just don't spell their name eccentrically enough for your taste, then bow your head to the curiously capitalized SONiA and disappear fear. Recently reconfigured (SONiA remains, but her fear bandmates are different) with enhanced funk, these ladies make hardcore social issues and feminist politics fun again. They offer lyrics that would cause Ani to stop strumming long enough to throw a high-five, all the while traipsing the spectrum from compositionally complex folk to catchy, earnest, Pretenders-ish pop-rock. While their inexplicable use of caps lock may have you rubbing your eyes, SONiA and disappear fear's unparalleled mastery of music will leave you loving your ears.
