Citing Jeff Tweedy, Stephen Malkmus and Alex Chilton as favorites, Lawrence songwriter Justin Ripley writes thoughtful acoustic pop songs with a self-effacing sense of humor and enough bouyancy to induce habitual toe-tapping. Ripley is a regular performer (and host) at the Jazzhaus's weekly Wednesday open mic, but he's branching out into the taverns with a new band dubbed The Pomonas. He'll be celebrating his birthday with fellow pop rockers The Girl Is a Ghost from Kansas City and Andrew Conner and Jeff Ferrell of Lawrence's Ghosty.
