The talented Norah Jones shook up her sound with last year's The Fall, an oblique breakup record that found Jones toning down the piano and turning up the electric guitar. It worked remarkably well, as did the collaborations with a handful of songwriters like Ryan Adams and Okkervil River's Will Sheff. While we're undoubtedly excited about the impending arrival of Jones, we're just as jazzed about her choice of opening act: Denton songstress Sarah Jaffe. Get there early, folks -- you won't be disappointed. Tickets for the singer-songwriter's May appearance go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at all Ticketmaster outlets.
