Somewhere in Japan, Norah has a fan club of a half-dozen girls, all with Norah selfies on their phones.
While I’m on the subject of Miss Norah, she has some pretty cool gigs coming up over the next two weeks.
- On August 3, her band, the Major Minors, plays The Grog Shop, opening for the national School of Rock AllStars. They hit at 7 pm, and tickets are only $10, available here.
- On August 5, the Major Minors again invade Whiskey Island, with music from 2 – 6 pm, and this show is free.
- Finally, on July 30, SoR Stronsgville holds its annual Parking Lot Show, previewing its summer shows, to include Donovan’s Beatles show and Norah’s punk show. Free music and not-free food trucks start at 1 pm.
