Katharine Whalen & Her Fascinators, Mixed Greens, Mr. Coffee & the Creamers, Cole Park 

When: Tue., March 15, 7:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $5-$7
Attempts to fix Katharine Whalen in a time, place or sound have been fruitless. Let's simply acknowledge the sultry waver and sonorous swell of her alto, which is smooth and poised enough to accompany evening wear, yet warm enough for jeans and the back porch. That's perhaps what makes it so easy for her to swing from jazz to country to rockabilly. Drawing on members of her country-rock combo Lucky, Whalen has assembled a new act for her fascinating latest efforts, shadowed by '60s pop. Even that comparison is inexact; tracks such as "Follow" merge Brill Building balladry with a noisy electronic undercurrent. Proceeds from this show, which begins at 7:30 p.m. and also includes Mixed Greens, Mr. Coffee & the Creamers and Cole Park, will help defray medical expenses of a local family; donations are encouraged. Whalen also joins Billy Sugarfix's Carousel and Animal Alphabet on March 10 at 9 p.m. at the Casbah in Durham; tickets are $5 in advance, $7 day of show. —Chris Parker
