AMERICANA | Miss Tess and The Talk Backs 

She's swung sweetly with a gentle sepia coo for so long that all the antiquity is washed away. Though this Big Apple chanteuse's sound is that of Tin Pan Alley on a Saturday night, it's not a borrowed aesthetic from long ago — it's her sound. She owns it. Miss Tess ably chops though the jazzy changes and sings stunningly behind the beat as her new outfit, The Talk Backs, provide a sensational groove to the sashay. Her new CD, "Talk Back," is her first in three years.

Miss Tess and the Talk Backs perform Friday, May 24, 9 p.m. at Lovin' Cup, 300 Park Point. $5-$7.

New Archery performs with Mikaela Davis, The Michael Valada Trio, and Par 6 on Saturday, May 25, 8 p.m. at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Ave. $6-$8.
