Heather Smith's music project Bone & Bell released its debut EP 'Loom.'

We’re barely into January, and already the first music fest of 2011 has arrived! Tomorrow Never Knows is a five-day affair. The fest presents an impressive array of indie acts. You can check out dense rock from The Besnard Lakes, poppier sounds from The Helio Sequence or hard-hitting hip hop from Indiana native Freddie Gibbs.

Local acts like Gibbs are scattered throughout the line-up. Another local musician, Heather Smith, joined "Eight Forty-Eight" in studio.

Her music project Bone & Bell perform Thursday night at Schubas in Chicago and relases a debut EP, "Loom."

The show is headlined by Oscar-winning songwriter Markéta Irglová.

Bone & Bell will also perform this Friday night at Uncommon Ground in Chicago’s Wrigleyville neighborhood.
