LISA FISCHER is a singer who really gets around. Her life is an endless round of planes, trains, and automobiles, rehearsals and fittings. On tour with the Rolling Stones, Sting, Chris Botti or Nine Inch Nails, her name may not be on the marquee, but she doesn’t care. She’s busy loving every minute of it.
Lisa rose to fame in 1992 when she won a Grammy® for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for her first single, “How Can I Ease the Pain,” from her album So Intense beating out the “Queen of Soul” and in an unlikely tie with Patti LaBelle. The rest of her resumé is pretty impressive too: touring, recording, and music making with Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Beyonce, Dionne Warwick, Dolly Parton, Bobby McFerrin, Alicia Keyes and many others. Along with many other top session and backup singers she’s featured in Morgan Neville’s Oscar and Grammy-winning 2013 documentary Twenty Feet from Stardom.

See her perform at Gruene Hall for two Harriet Tubmans.
Doors open at 7:00 with Buick6 opening. The dynamic Ms. Williams begins at 9.
Lucinda Williams has been maneuvering down a path all her own for more than three decades now, emerging from Lake Charles, Louisiana, where her iconoclastic upbringing helped her forge the stunning Lucinda Williams (aka, the Rough Trade album). Somehow, that milestone 1988 set eventually disappeared from shelves, but was reissued 25 years later, as a deluxe edition that garnered unanimous acclaim — including Jim Farber of New York’s Daily News hailing it by calling it “A perfect work. There’s not a chord, lyric, beat or inflection that doesn’t pull at the heart or make it soar.” For much of the ‘90s, Lucinda moved around the country, turning out work that won immense respect inside the industry – as borne out by the Grammy afforded Mary-Chapin Carpenter’s interpretation of Williams’ “Passionate Kisses.” While her recorded output was sparse for a time, the work that did was invariably hailed for its indelible impressionism – like 1998’s Car Wheels on a Gravel Road, which notched her a second Grammy Award. Over the next decade, she crafted such classic sets as West (2007), and Blessed (2011), which the Los Angeles Times dubbed “a dynamic, human, album, one that’s easy to fall in love with.” Lucinda credits the injection of vitality and passion that emerged in part to Tom Overby, her partner in both life and music, who’s acted as both a sounding board and collaborator, contributing production ideas and offering encouragement to forge forward in directions that she might not have otherwise explored. That creative connection has grown increasingly electric over the years, as borne out by 2014’s Down Where the Spirit Meets the Bone, which won the 2015 Americana Music Association Award for Album of the Year. On February 5th, Lucinda Williams will release her 12th studio album, The Ghosts of Highway 20, which gives listeners a remarkably vivid look at how the highway has been a literal and figurative backdrop throughout her entire life.

From the Alamo City Rollergirls “About” page:
Our league was founded in 2005 by Kat “Kitty Glitter” Feuerbackner and Cate “Nita Spankin” Compton. These two awesome ladies were on a mission to bring derby to San Antonio, Texas, where our league still calls home today. The founding duo was able to recruit skaters and volunteers and form a league that could be nationally recognized.
Tonight, the Alamo City Rollergirls are trying out a new flock of vicious vixens. No, you do not have to be a professional on skates or even own a pair. Go to the website to find out how you can support the team.

I’m posting a day early for this event because you may want to save a few dollars to support this great cause and rare live musical experience. Plus it looks like she’s the key to laying out my Metal Friday lineup.
Saturday, August 8 2015, The Animal Defense League and 5 Paws Café will be hosting a live musical benefit from 12 PM – 2AM at Fitzgerald’s. Between the hours of noon to 5, pets will be available for adoption. I met Rachael (the lead singer of the band Dirty Rae) when I was fronting Explosive Device at a “Ladies That Rock” show. She has that “San Antonio Soul”. It’s that undercurrent of the esoteric that keeps the tourists coming back until they finally just make Say Town their residence of choice. Whatever that is, she’s got it. She is also co-producer of “The Killing Lounge” – a local radio show that features one-on-one interviews with local live talent in the metal scene. Both Sean Nations (Even In Death) and Chrissy Bliss (Whisky Bliss) have been guests on her show so…yeah…Sweet Rachael isn’t in the “playing around” mood. Unless she’s on that stage. Talk about some soul-quenching! Someone loves that cheerful giver…
