Karen and the Sorrows


I’m always on the prowl for country music that doesn’t conform to the traditional restrictions of the genre. Karen and the Sorrows are part of a Brooklyn queer country scene that has the same melancholy, heartbreak and slide guitar as its conventional counterparts, but from a queer perspective. Fresh off the release of the 2017 album The Narrow Place, the band will be joined at Howlers by the slow and pretty harmonies of Arlo Aldo, and the self-described “stoked folk” of Pennsylvania Dirt.

7 p.m. 4509 Liberty Ave., Bloomfield. $5. 21 and older. 412-682-0320 or
