Selfishly, But Willingly

Lately, Sarah Jaffe's outdrawn the headliners she's shared bills with, and that can mean only one thing

The next step, Jaffe says, is to take the show on the road and see if it can have the same effect elsewhere: "It's all I talk about," she says. "It's all I want to do."

But, because of the painfully slow-moving pace of the industry, Jaffe concedes that she'll just have to hurry up and wait.

"That's my motto," she laughs.

Even Born Again's been released now, but Sarah Jaffe keeps looking forward.

Even Born Again's been released now, but Sarah Jaffe keeps looking forward.

In the meantime, she'll have to settle for more opening slots. This week, she'll open for Jeremy Enigk at House of Blues (see Critic's Picks, page 63). Next month, she'll do a three-date Texas tour with Rhett Miller of the Old 97's.

And though the names and settings for those shows may prevent this from happening too soon from now, there's at least one more accolade Jaffe should earn in the near future: Headlining act.

Can't be too far off. She deserves it.

Really: If you're already the main draw on a bill to begin with, what's the difference
