April Smith returns to San Diego with her throwback cabaret-style performance.
A national tour brought April Smith and the Great Picture Show to the Casbah recently with Pennsylvania's Langhorne Slim; now she returns to our fair city for a more intimate show at Lestat's.
Smith's performances are a throwback to old school cabaret, the music is sassy and April commands the audiences attention every time she plays. April will be joined by Jenny Owens Young, also no stranger to San Diego, touring through more than a few times in the past couple years, with her own twangy stylings.
