Growth is an intensely tricky proposition — for any individual adult human being, let alone an individual adult human being that’s an artist. So it is with yet another turn of the kaleidoscope that we view Cat Power in performance this evening. It’s an experience that promises, at the very least, songs from Wanderer, her latest release on Domino Records — and, at most, a short sharp shard of artistic expression that qualifies as a kind of release in itself. Much like a tree grows rings through a long process of being and becoming — changes that come with womanhood and motherhood — so too does Chan Marshall reveal her core; her heart. The heart is like a seed from which good things grow — not the least of which are the rawness and the truth you’ll bear witness to ere this night is out.

Cat Power plays with Zsela at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, November 13 at The Echo.
