A captivating buzz band from Brooklyn via Albany, NY, upstart indie collective Florist revolves around 21-year-old frontwoman Emily Sprague and her melodic, confessional songwriting. The band’s debut full-length, The Birds Outside Sang, was released in January via Northeastern imprint Double Double Whammy and warmly received by critics and listeners alike. Fellow New York singer-songwriter Emily Yacina is also featured on Monday’s Caledonia bill along with Athens’ Jianna Justice and Atlanta’s My Son Gordeaux. All four acts share an affinity for bittersweet folk-pop and profoundly personal songwriting, and all are worth your time and dollars.
