Indie singer/songwriter sami.the.great at Verve

TERRE HAUTE — Sami.the.great can’t get enough of the road, it seems. Fresh off the end of her “Great Animation Tour,” the indie singer/songwriter is gearing up to hit the road once again for a Spring/Summer tour.

The artist will perform Saturday at The Verve in downtown Terre Haute.

With her self-titled debut LP receiving critical acclaim from well-known publications — like Daytrotter, Nylon, Bust and American Songwriter — Sami Akbari, known musically as sami.the.great, is bringing her glittering indie pop back to audiences across the country.

With The Deli NYC nominating her into the Best of NYC 2012, and reminding listeners that, “the lady doesn’t lack a fair share of sass and character, either, which makes things even more interesting,” a live show by sami.the.great is sure to be unique.
