Thursday night, The Make-Out Room hosted a relatively rare performance by Petracovich. Playing some new songs amidst the favorites from her two albums, Jessica was joined onstage by a drummer, which enhanced the organic, folk-oriented side of her folktronica sound. The electronics made their appearance as well, in the form of loops of voice and sound recorded and played back live, which is a great detail I wish more artists would use to keep the audience engaged while incorporating samples. As warm as the instrumentals were, though, Jessica’s voice was just as compelling, and the large audience responded to her set with appreciative cheers.
