There are two chances to catch this band before they fly away.

Sister Sparrow, a.k.a. Arleigh Kincheloe, spent her teenage years singing and dancing in the alleyways of New York City—her brother, Jackson, and his harmonica never far behind. The siblings decided to take their soulful sound to the next level and created a seven-piece band complete with guitar, bass, trumpet, saxophone and drums.

Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds' music conveys some serious NYC pride and sounds like the late-Amy Winehouse backed by a full brass band. SSDB has played Bonnaroo, the Telluride Jazz, the Harvest Jazz Festival, Austin City Limits, the Jazz and Heritage Festival in New Orleans and now, they'll land in Boise.

There are two chances to catch SSDB: Thursday, Aug. 13, at a Record Exchange in-store performance and on Saturday, Aug. 15, on the Tour de Fat mainstage at Ann Morrison Park. Both shows are free.
