Katie Pearlman: Hometown Heroine

Northern New Jersey singer/songwriter Katie Pearlman is gearing up to celebrate the release of her third studio offering, Girls Like Us, a concept album based on the stories of real women. Having made a name for herself on the drums over the course of her career, this is to be her first time performing not behind the kit. Her weapon of choice this time around is the acoustic guitar. Katie will be in Teaneck at Mexicali Live on Jan. 21 for the Girls Like Us album release party performing alongside Wigjam. Tickets for the event are $10, dinner seating begins at 6 p.m.
