64. See the Legendary Janis Ian at the Alberta Rose

IanWow, the Alberta Rose has been booking some queertastic events lately.  Joey Arias brought down the house a couple weeks ago, and, on April 5th, society child Janis Ian will perform.

Singer-songwriter rocked the nation with her subversive hit Society’s Child, which was banned across the nation before becoming a #1 hit.  She returned a few years later with the hit song At Seventeen, a searing ballad about bullying.  And, she just won the Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album, beating out  Bill Clinton, Michelle Obama, Rachel Maddow and Ellen Degeneres (WOW).  Out and proud for, oh decades now, Janis Ian is a true original and an absolute must-see.

Fun fact: Janis Ian was the musical guest on the first episode of Saturday Night Live.
