Melissa Etheridge

by Metroland Staff on June 19, 2013



We completely forgot that Melissa Etheridge won an Oscar. (If you must know, it was for the theme song of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth.) That’s about all we’ve forgotten about one of the seminal singer-songwriters of the last 25 years, however. Bluesy and ballsy, Etheridge has never been less than entertaining—and honest. She’s at one of the most beautiful venues in the Berkshires Friday night, and while she doesn’t have a new album, she has a boatload of great songs for you. Eric Hutchinson will open. (June 21, 7 PM, $23.50-$69, Koussevitzky Music Shed, 297 West St., Lenox, Mass., 413-637-1600)
