Eclectic rocker to visit

British fringe act Holly Golightly, who has released a number of well-received albums covering blues, folk, country and soul territory in a little over a decade, returns to Athens after a recent visit to launch a lengthy European tour with two shows this Friday and Saturday at the Rodeo Club (34 Heyden St, Victoria Sq, tel 210.881.4702). Golightly released her debut solo album «The Good Things» in 1995 after spending four years as singer of the Headcoatees, and has since put out a prolific supply of solidly rated albums and toured regularly. Golightly’s sound is a blend of pre-rock electric blues and folk rock. She guested on the top-selling rock act White Stripes’ 2003 album «Elephant,» dueting with Jack White, a fan, and also gained wider exposure with a recording of «There’s An End,» the title song for a recent Jim Jarmusch film, «Broken Flowers.» Emerging Australian indie-rock act Jessica Bell will open on both nights.
