Music can do a lot of things, but how often does it actually give you chills? Leah Siegel's lilting melodies and dark lyrics are partly to blame for the shivers; her voice—an urgent, haunting thing that we can't not compare to Jeff Buckley's—takes care of the rest. Siegel kicks off a much-anticipated October residency on Monday at Pete's Candy Store, where there's never a cover for live music. But she'll be selling copies of her gorgeous album Little Mule ($13). We dare you to leave the show without buying one. 10/13 at 10:30pm; 10/20 and 10/27 at 9:30pm. 709 Lorimer [Richardson/Frost] Bklyn 718.302.3770.
