Torres at the Fillmore


Among the recent batch of soul-baring female singer/songwriters to come out of the American South, Torres—aka Macon, Georgia-bred MacKenzie Scott—has evolved into one of the most original, complex and uncompromising artists in recent memory. Here latest release, What an Enormous Room, is due out the day after her Philly performance, so expect a rambunctious, thought-provoking show covering all the bases—synth-pop, indie rock, folk, country and more.
