Back at the outset of her career, “haunting” was a word that got used a lot in discussing Chicago singer-songwriter Angel Olsen: the spacious, unsettling minimalism of her songs, the way she locked eyes with the audience. Her music has grown in the years since to incorporate increasingly robust tones and textures, most recently materializing in an impressive collection of retro-chic indie rock hooks on 2016’s My Woman. But that underlying feeling that sent Olsen on her way remains…so it’s undeniably appropriate that her autumn tour brings her to Philadelphia on Halloween.

Olsen teams up with opener Vagabon to play Franklin Music Hall on Thursday, October 31st, the second night of her month-and-a-half run. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 17 at 10 a.m., and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar. Olsen followed up My Woman in 2017 with the outtakes compilation Phases; hopefully she’ll be using this tour to road-test some long-anticipated new material.

In the meantime, have a listen to some of our favorites from her back-catalog below.
