Concert / Live Music
Jessica Lea Mayfield will be playing at Barleycorn's on February 10th at 9 p.m. The show is 21+.
Mayfield writes about these lessons that she's learning in such honest and staggeringly sophisticated ways that it's hard to believe that she's only 22 years old and not 45, going on her third no-good husband. She marvels at the ways that nights pull their strings, pushing people together and encouraging them to do things that they wouldn't have thought about doing a few hours earlier. She sings on "Sometimes At Night," "Sometimes at night/The bodies collide/And I forget who I'm laying next to," but Mayfield makes the dalliance sound like it could end with breakfast in bed, or it might conclude with an awkward gathering up of clothing, purse and coat and a meaningless kiss on the cheek.
