Brodie Lane’s Tuesday night country chanteuse, 6pm.
From “Barely Breathing” to Spring Awakening to ... the Smiths? Nearly 20 years after he shot onto the pop charts and into the throbbing hearts of Gen Xers of both sexes, singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik’s career has traversed radio airwaves and the boards of Broadway. All that, and his biggest stroke of genius may very well be last year’s Covers 80s, a beautifully somber and nostalgic interpretation of the songs comprising the gestalt of Sheik’s (and much of his audience’s) formative years. – Melanie Haupt
Meshell Ndegeocello remains as hard to pin down as her surname is to pronounce. Of late, the singer/bassist/poet/activist has honored her musical heroes. She recently probed the work of Gil Scott-Heron, covering his catalog in live shows and discussing his legacy at South by Southwest. Her new muse is High Priestess of Soul, Nina Simone, to whom an album of interpretations, Pour Une Âme Souveraine (For a Sovereign Soul), is dedicated. Two shows, 7 & 9:30pm. – Thomas Fawcett
