Nina Diaz, Alyson Alonzo

NPR once gave SA songstress Nina Diaz some impressive cred as “one of the two or three most exciting, scary-good vocalists in rock today.” The praise rings true if you cross-reference the video of Diaz singing “Rebirth,” one of the few tunes Diaz has recorded in hi-fi since the hiatus from Girl in a Coma. As the band drops into orchestrated hits, Diaz sings of a former lover, her eyes wild with a frightening intensity and her voice scaling octaves with ease. Alyson Alonzo opens with a gilt, booming voice, made all the more rich through her deft use of loops. $5-$10, 9pm, Limelight, 2718 N. St. Mary's, (210) 735-7775
