It was this time last year that we got hip to Detroit-based singer-songwriter Alexandria Maniak, who makes music under the name Shortly. At the time, Shortly had just one song out, which landed her on Metro Times’ 2018 Bands to Watch list — and since then, she has not disappointed. The Triple Crown Records artist released her debut EP, Richmond, has shared stages with the Decemberists, Phoebe Bridgers, Mitski, and was a featured artist at this year’s Mo Pop Festival alongside the likes of Bon Iver and St. Vincent. In her last homecoming show of the year, Shortly gears up for what is bound to be her brightest year yet. Dogleg, Formerly Bodies, Ness Lake, and Vagabonds are also on the bill.
