Riding Shaggy to Hell

In just over two years and on the back of two albums, Po’ Girl — the urban-minded but banjo-toting trio of Trish Klein, Diona Davies, and Allison Russell — has been riding around in their van named “Shaggy” to deliver a synthesis of everything Americana to crowds throughout the States, Canada, and the U.K. Their latest Vagabond Lullabies entails everything from countrified rap to citified twang. They come to the Lobero Theatre’s Sings Like Hell music series this Saturday, January 28, with opener Jake La Botz, an accomplished singer-songwriter from Chicago.  — Matt Kettmann
