    That one-line description on the Pete’s Candy Store website—“Patsy Cline meets Tom Petty”—is astonishingly accurate when it comes to Olivia Mancini, who’s playing tonight.

    Her musical presence has shape-shifted since she made up part of the rhythm section of the now-defunct Washington Social Club—she could be just Olivia Mancini, or she could be Olivia Mancini & the Mates, a semi-loose collective of friends who have been making music and mischief together since 2005.

    In any event, the DC-based Mancini’s often heartbreaking voice, which can go from a rasp to a wail in half a second, setting your every hair on end, should sound fantastic in the tiny room at Pete’s. Catch her if you can.

    Olivia Mancini, Thursday, March 24 at 8PM at Pete’s Candy Store 709 Lorimer Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn; 718-302-3770. No cover.
