Laura Cantrell

New York City-based singer-songwriter Laura Cantrell is something of an Americana legend, having hosted the beloved, roots-focused “Radio Thrift Shop” program on Jersey indie radio bastion WFMU for over a decade, and embarking on a critically acclaimed music career of her own in the process. With an affinity for the country classics and a blessed with the gift of storytelling, as well as a time-worn singing voice that falls somewhere between Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, Cantrell is touring behind her fifth full-length, the sweet and simple No Way There From Here. Seeing her perform in the intimate but gritty confines of the Caledonia will be a nice bonus.

9 p.m. $10 (21+), $12 (18–20).
