Her last name is Greek but, once you speak to Aly Tadros, you always end up in Egypt or Pakistan.

A natural world traveler, she’s a musical sponge who absorbs whatever she hears wherever she goes. And yes, because she’s an independent, idiosyncratic female singer-songwriter, there are the inevitable Cat Power or Ani DiFranco comparisons, but the similarities are more ideological than musical.

The 21-year-old San Antonian remains a work-in-progress, but it’s clear (even though she only picked up the guitar recently) that she was born to fingerpick and execute a perfect Cuban clave with her flamenco shoes (she’s that big of a musical mess). Once she figures out which songs need banjo and violin and which don’t, she’ll be alright. In the meantime, the new Luna (still smoke-free, but now every seat is a good one) and the up-and-coming Tadros are the perfect match for a laid-back, fun, mysterious and warm night of pure singing and songwriting. 8pm Wed, Feb 6, Luna, 6740 San Pedro Ave., (210) 804-2433
