Femme for Real
In this day of trauma rock a la Tori "I Just Can't Get Over It" Amos, it's damned refreshing to enjoy a female songwriter who doesn't need to revel in darkness in order to connect. Joan Armatrading's been around since the mid-'70s (she wrote "Love and Affection" back then), and she's just that kind of songstress. Even her recent foray Into the Blues is less melancholy and more a celebration of the genre. Catch her at House of Blues Thursday. Tickets are $30 to $45. Call 214-978-BLUE.
