plus Katie Herzig / Butterfly Boucher

Beachland Ballroom, Cleveland, OH
Three ladies take the stage tonight with strummed guitars, great voices, and finely crafted lyrics. Headlining we have Aussie Missy Higgins, who several years stepped away from her music career in order to pursue a normal life untouched by the buzz and hustle of the music industry. She’s now back with an album that describes her mixed feelings about being a performing artist, entitled The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle. Her fellow Australian, Butterfly Boucher (and the producer of The Ol’ Razzle Dazzle), has released a new self-titled solo album that’s full of quirky and schizophrenic touches that are both indebted to ‘80s new wave and ‘90s trip-hop. These two ladies will be joined on this tour by old friend Katie Herzig, who also brings a sly, funny, and colorful sensibility to her tunes. In other words, this night isn’t gonna be full of hand-holding and Kumbayas. If you’re bored by the usual old girl-with-acoustic guitar sad sack routine, help is on the way!
