WAMH Presents: Snail Mail

Snail Mail, the project of singer-songwriter Lindsey Jordan, is one of the premier up-and-coming indie acts around and blowing up fast. Jordan has earned Pitchfork's praise in a full-length write up as "The Wisest Teenage Indie Rocker We Know," a glowing debut EP review, and "Best New Track," The New York Times lauded her as one of "the bands that prove women are making the best rock music today," and she performed for NPR's Tiny Desk concert series - and all while still enrolled in high school.

Come see Snail Mail and local favorite Spacekase Saturday night in the Marsh House Ballroom at Amherst College! Free for all five-college students and the general public!

Brought to you by WAMH 89.3 FM Amherst College Radio. Co-sponsered by Marsh House and Amherst Student Life.
