Music Day 2: Oh Susanna

Oh Susanna (aka Suzie Ungerleider) is a criminally underappreciated songwriter. Her newest effort, Short Stories, is well-named because throughout her career she’s told a variety of tales in personas ranging from wronged women to God-crazed killers.  Her robust voice cut through the Velveeta Room’s chatter, and she further set herself apart by being one of the few SXSW artists to maintain their normal stage banter despite the abbreviated playing time. Backed by drums, bass, and crackling lead guitar, her songs really came to life tonight.
