Phatsy Kline's Parlor Lounge in the Historic Eagle House has been cropping up on my radar a lot lately and it's no wonder. From downtempo DJ nights to singer-songwriter shows, the people at Phatsy's have been booking some intriguing acts. Tonight might be the one where I come out to see what all the fuss is about, as they host veteran jazz vocalist Bill Allison at 7 p.m. (free).
For the last 30 years, Laurie Lewis has been one of the big names in bluegrass and its derivative genres of American music. A fiddle player blessed with a lovely singing voice, Ms. Lewis brings her band The Right Hands to The Old Steeple tonight at 7:30 ($20), where she will sing heartbreakers and mythmakers for you with her perfectly scored and slightly burred voice. Not a lot of women get this far in the relative man's world of bluegrass and even fewer win Grammys and the acclaim of their musical peers. Come see one who has.
