Michelle Shocked 

When: Sat., Sept. 22, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $20-25

Michelle Shocked's first brush with fame came when she was arrested at the 1984 Democratic National Convention for protesting against corporate contributions to political campaigns. That issue's hardly changed, but Shocked surely has. Since then, the troubadour—who's lived in Austin, San Francisco and New York City, and was influenced by their respective music scenes—has released a slew of albums that are unsurprisingly political in theme but unpredictable in approach. She's explored traditional-sounding country, blues and folk, luxuriated in the comfort of contemporary adult alternative, blasted through punk rock and jumped into big-band swing numbers. Within each, Shocked seems ready to make every style her own. —Spencer Griffith
