Wanda Jackson

When: Fri., Feb. 10, 8:30 p.m. 2012

The seductive croon that belongs to Wanda Jackson has indeed lost some resonance over the years, but the First Lady of Rockabilly certainly isn't missing any spunk. Courted by the King when she and Presley were on tour as teens in the '50s, she still possesses the special spark that producer Jack White helped flame on last year's comeback The Party Ain't Over. She describes White's subtle insistence as a "velvet hammer," but it's hard to argue with his Rick Rubin-style success. The slashing rockabilly guitar's up his alley, but Jackson brings fury and passion striking for a 74-year old. Hell, she's still a kitten at heart. —Chris Parker

Price: $24-26
