Check out Sarah Jaffe at the grand opening of The Box Garden at Legacy Hall on Friday May 18th.
Since her debut EP Even Born Again 2008, Sarah Jaffe’s endearingly stark narratives have gone from homespun folk-pop songs to decidedly cathartic pop ballads without losing any of their thoughtfulness or intimacy. Her full length Suburban Nature introduced the artist to an international audience. The pace of her music shifted with the release of The Body Wins, Don’t Disconnect and her most recent Bad Baby but the delicacy has not: instrumentations now veer more towards electro-pop, but her storytelling and heartfelt lyricism is still every bit as cerebral.
Jaffe’s voice has been featured in the Disney Pixar short The Blue Umbrella scored by Jon Brion. She can also be heard in the Occulus virtual reality short Dear Angelica and has recently composed music for Never Goin’ Back , which premiered January 2018 at Sundance. She’s toured the US and Europe multiple times, performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and shared the stage with Norah Jones, Patty Griffin, Erykah Badu, Metric, Chelsea Wolfe, Midlake, Blitzen Trapper and Cyndi Lauper.
Jaffe also has a writing partnership with hip-hop producer S1 (Beyoncé, Kanye West, Jay Z). The duo’s first collaboration, “Bad Guy” (on whose chorus Jaffe both wrote and sings), appears on Eminem’s Grammy Award winning MMLP2. Tickets $25 will go on Sale March 2 at 10:00 am. Doors open at 7:00 pm, show starts 8:00 pm.
Since opening late last year, Legacy Hall at Legacy West in Plano has already developed a cult following. With over 20 food stalls, bars and its very own brewery, the magic of Legacy Hall lies in its large variety of choices—there’s literally something for everyone.
The Box Garden at Legacy Hall is a huge live entertainment venue. With seating for more than 400 people and featuring repurposed shipping containers that will divide and decorate the innovative space, the Box Garden is a patio on steroids: the perfect spot to enjoy a drink and bite to eat in the Texas sunshine.
At the center of the Box Garden at Legacy Hall lies a 22- by 30-foot stage with a 600 square foot LED screen and a full green room able to accommodate local bands, national artists, or even host a yoga class! The Box Garden boasts as much versatility and options as its parent, Legacy Hall. And, the outdoor space will be home to five new “stalls”, including a Texas BBQ stand and four thirst-quenching stands with options varying from fresh squeezed juices to margaritas.
