For those of us who will be skipping the Spice Girls reunion tour this winter—join us at Jennifer North in downtown Champaign tonight. Cowgirl cutie (née punk rocker) Angie Heaton, Headlights siren Erin Fein, Marla Hansen (violist for indie heartbreaker Sufjan Stevens), and charming pianist Lynn O’Brien will be filling the space with their own brands of “girl power”—the kind that naturally exudes from real, intelligent, funny and talented women. Pick up some last-minute gifts from the boutique as you listen, and feel the warmth of holiday cheer in the assurance that part of your admission donation will go to the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum. The show starts at 8pm, and admission is on a sliding scale from $5 to $10.

Jennifer North is located at 17 Taylor Street in downtown Champaign, between Dandelion and Radio Maria.
