Madeline, the Athens, Ga.-rooted, Baton Rouge-bred singer/songwriter, returns to Louisiana on the heels of 2008's White Flag (Orange Twin), a quietly released and underrated but devastating set of honest love songs. On White Flag, she begins to exit teenagerdom — she self-released her first album, Kissing & Dancing, in 2002, just shy of 18 years old — and surrenders to adulthood, but still with one foot firmly in her youth. She takes her White Flag Band along for the ride again, this time with the release of Tour EP, a humble collection of songs juggling lo-fi charm and the folk confessionals found on White Flag. The album, recorded in the Pacific Northwest, gets help from members of Mt. Eerie, Architecture in Helsinki and a few K Records veterans. Her current home at Orange Twin (where she also released The Slow Bang in 2006) finds her among the Elephant 6 fringe and the label's collective, with members of Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power and Olivia Trevor Control in residence. Between coasts is New Orleans, her Dirty South anchor when not on tour and pulling at punk rockers' heart strings. Psychedelic soul rebel One Man Machine opens. Admission $5.
