CANCELED: Melissa Ferrick (Back Room) 

When: Tue., Dec. 15, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $18-$20
Melissa Ferrick scored a deal with Atlantic Records and a slot as Morrissey’s tour opener in 1991, which should have given her and her fiery folk-rock a leg up on her Lilith Fair-like successors. But for two decades, she’s been issuing her own albums and stripping away extraneous ornamentation from her rough-hewn solo approach. To wit, Ferrick’s self-titled latest record features naught but her and her six-string; the sparseness emphasizes her emotionality. —Patrick Wall
