Lizzy Ross Band 

When: Sat., Aug. 25, 6-8 p.m. 2012

What: 

Though she's released a couple albums that stretch the boundaries of her soulful voice, Lizzy Ross remains a guppy at her craft. Her blue-eyed shimmy is full of fire and time-tested vocal mannerisms that skirt the line between reverence and cliché. Excuse her callowness and consider her expressiveness, or overabundance of it. When the music track's sympathetic and she doesn't push so hard (as on the country-flavored "Needle and Thread"), she's actually quite endearing. Ross has a fine instrument and some inkling of an approach, but she's still more explosive young fireballer than seasoned pitcher. —Chris Parker
