Our friends at the Sanctuary on Penn are hosting a musical event, and your friendly neighborhood Ed.Blogger wants to help 'em fill the joint.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE [5/1/2015]
SINGER/SONGWRITER MIRAH TO APPEAR IN A SMALL-VENUE, ALL ACOUSTIC SHOW @ THE SANCTUARY ON PENN
The Sanctuary on Penn is proud to present nationally known singer/songwriter, Mirah, in concert on Wednesday, May 13th at 8:00pm.
The concert will be held at The Sanctuary on Penn at 701 N Pennsylvania St, and tickets are $15 and available online at or at the door if any are left available.
A quietly graceful and earthy songwriter, this performance will be a smaller, acoustic version of her music. Her lyrics invoke nature, simplicity, and a quiet brand of lust sung with with a voice that could melt the coldest heart.
Seats are EXTREMELY limited.
After getting her start in the music scene of Olympia, Washington in the late 1990s, she released a number of well-received solo albums on K Records, including You Think It's Like This but Really It's Like This (1999) and Advisory Committee (2001). Her 2009 album (a)spera peaked on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart at #46, while her 2011 collaborative album Thao + Mirah peaked at #7.
Mirah has collaborated with artists such as Phil Elvrum of The Microphones, Tune-Yards, Susie Ibarra, Jherek Bischoff and Thao Nguyen. A new solo album, Changing Light, was released on May 13, 2014 on her imprint Absolute Magnitude Records.
According to The Rumpus in 2011, "Mirah's early records...are DIY mini-masterpieces that express a punk sensibility through broken drum machines, reverb-drenched guitars and ukulele. Her more recent albums...are mature, complex and immaculately-produced."
The Sanctuary on Penn is a converted brick church in downtown Indianapolis built in 1875 – both a visually and acoustically magical space.
