Anna Agosta @ Beat Kitchen (6/21)

Anna Agosta may be one of the most underrated musician in the city today. Last Fall she released her debut Ep, “Greenhouse”, which featured the standout single, “Never Fall” (video below). Through out the five songs on the EP, Agosta demonstrated powerful, soulful vocals and an ear for talented production partners. We are eagerly awaiting her next release and strongly feel that more of the city should be as well.

You can catch Anna Agosta on June 21st at Beat Kitchen opening for Emily Blue and LA’s Tim Atlas.
