When: Fri., Sept. 29, 10 p.m. 2017
Nothing like a good pun to give you an inkling of what a band is all about. Take Burlington’s Julia Caesar, for example. Singer-songwriters Katy Hellman, Megan Rice and Liz Stafford bounced around a few pithy, patriarchy-smashing monikers — such as Heavy Flow and Jodie and the Fosters — before settling on their chosen name. Appalachian Americana and undeniably soulful blues inform their indie-rock sensibilities. And the group’s tight musicianship makes them one of the most promising acts to emerge locally this year. Julia Caesar perform on Friday, September 29, at Radio Bean in Burlington.
