      Joy Ike: Music at the Cup & Chaucer Cafe in Oakland

      Pitt's Hillman Library has a cafe called the Cup & Chaucer (cute, no?) and they sometimes have events, such as live music and the like, in the cafe. This particular event is collaboration between the University of Pittsburgh Library System and Calliope House (the Pittsburgh Folk Music Society). It's called the Emerging Legends Series, where they highlight local musicians -- the musician for this particular one is Joy Ike. From the site: Joy Ike's music is an indie-infused mix of jazz, pop, and neo-soul. She has often been compared to the likes of Fiona Apple, Corrinne Bailey Rae, and Norah Jones. The Pittsburgh-grown, Nigerian singer/songwriter has only been writing and performing for 4 years but in that short amount of time has garnered much success in the independent music scene and was voted ÂÂ"Best ArtistÂÂ" and "Best Solo Artists" by readers of the Pittsburgh City Paper in 2008. Now a full-time artist, Joy Ike has had the privilege of opening for a handful of national recording acts and has worked with established organizations such as The Pittsburgh Public Theater, The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, WYEP, The Carnegie International Museum and The August Wilson Center. We'll meet at 5:30pm at the Cup & Chaucer cafe, which is located on the ground floor of the Hillman Library (look for a sign in the library). The music is from 6pm to 7pm so feel free to come later or leave early. The concert is free and the Hillman Library is open to the public (though I always feel really old there, since it's mostly students). Afterwards, if anyone is interested in joining me, I plan on getting a bite to eat somewhere. Note that because I have this posted elsewhere, I turned off automatic e-mail reminders for this event.
