Doors at 7 p.m. Show starts at 8 p.m.

Dig in deeper on the local artists performing at Blue Jay Listening Room

Ebony Payne-English

A pillar of Duval’s hip-hop scene and the city’s defacto poet laureate, Ebony Payne-English has recently undertaken her most ambitious work to date. In 2021 she dropped Kuongoza, her sixth studio album, which was released with an accompanying visual: a full-length hip-hopera of the same name. Payne-English is already at work on a follow-up.

Sailor Goon 

With a smattering of well-received singles and videos, and a spot on NPR Music’s #NowPlaying blog in 2021, local singer-songwriter Kayla Le, who works under the moniker Sailor Goon, has a high-ceiling. Le’s top-flight vocals and propensity for blending R&B, jazz, psychedelia and more also landed Sailor Goon on JME’s list of 10 Jacksonville artists to watch in 2022. Read about Sailor Goon’s latest single “Persian Rugs” on jaxmusic.org.

Animal Clinic

The solo project of multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and audio-tinkerer James Scott Rubia, Animal Clinic combines ethereal synths and samples with first-class lyricism and moody soundscapes. Animal Clinic’s 2019 full-length, Year of the Bore, got the reissue treatment in 2021, a retro cassette released by local music promoter Winterland Presents.

Souvineer is a new project from Alissa Leonard, whose group Isabela Parole is widely admired in the Jax music scene for their songwriting and blend of folk and indie rock. Souvineer’s first EP, Snowglobe, sparkles with lush production, intriguing imagery and gorgeous melodies. Read the full review on jaxmusic.org
