Juno her name

You may recognize Kimya Dawson as the female counterpart to Moldy Peaches or maybe from her music's ubiquitous presence in the recent film "Juno." Perhaps you're still scratching your head. In any case, Dawson has been creating quite a stir within the contemporary anti-folk movement. Her songs characteristically feature campfire-tinged acoustic guitar, nursery-rhyme rhythms and a whiny vocal, which might take some getting used to. But with the enormous popularity of the "Juno" soundtrack, Dawson has quickly climbed the ladder into larger venues such as The National. She plays Tuesday, April 1, at 7 p.m. $12.
