Shemekia Copeland 

When: Thu., Nov. 1, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $19-27

Shemekia Copeland spent her teen years opening for her father—Grammy-winning Texas bluesman Johnny Copeland—on tour. Since releasing her debut at the age of 19, the Harlem-born Copeland has taken the roots world by storm; at last year's Chicago Blues Festival, the daughter of the late Koko Taylor actually passed on the crown of Queen of the Blues to Copeland. On the new 33 1/3, Copeland demonstrates the versatility of her powerhouse pipes more than ever before, from the tough, straightforward electric swagger of "I Sing the Blues" to cuts that shade toward R&B (Sam Cooke's "Ain't That Good News") and swampy rock 'n' roll ("Lemon Pie"). —Spencer Griffith
