Before Boston-based songwriter Thalia Zedek (ex-Come) visited Columbus in October with the Thalia Zedek Band, she mentioned that she also had a new band, E, which she formed in 2013 with Jason Sanford of Neptune. Gavin McCarthy of Karate later joined on drums, and now E is embarking on its first tour. E is a more experimental, collaborative project than the TZ Band, with each member singing and writing songs. "I was in a creative rut," Zedek said. "We started making noise together, and it was so cathartic." (Safe bet)
