Natalie Merchant

When: Tue., July 15, 8 p.m. 2014

In 1981, 17-year-old college student Natalie Merchant joined the alt-rock band 10,000 Maniacs. A uniquely gifted vocalist and lyricist, she became a driving force behind the group’s first five albums, skyrocketing them to critical acclaim. After 12 years, Merchant left the band to pursue a solo career — a move that paid off with her multiplatinum debut Tigerlily. Decades later, she remains one of the enduring talents of her generation, embracing what the Guardian observes as “an unwillingness to compromise and total sincerity.” The songstress takes the stage with selections from her recent self-titled release, a collection of entirely original material.

Price: $39.25-60.25.
