- How The New York Times describes Suzanne Vega’s distinctive pipes: “The cool, vibratoless voice, always on the note…conveys an inviolable purity of heart tinged with mystery and a faraway melancholy.”
- Where you first heard that inviolable purity: in “Luka,” the 1987 hit that scored four Grammy nominations and broke the hearts of millions of listeners with its harrowing lyrics about abuse
- “Do do do do, do do do do, do do do do, do do do do”: the irresistible hook of “Tom’s Diner,” which you heard through Vega’s original a capella rendition or the hit dance remix by DNA
- Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Pentacles: Suzanne’s first studio album in seven years, hailed by AllMusic.com as “a welcome return by an artist who has remained stubbornly true to herself and only records when she has something new to say”
- What to expect from the show: favorites plucked from all eight of her records; masterful storytelling; the intimacy of a tiny fireplace kept inside a jewelry box
ARTS San Antonio
Although the River City certainly has always had its share of entertainment options, there used to be a surprising drought in performing arts. Luckily, ARTS San Antonio came along to bring cultural magic from around the country to Central Texas. Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet, Ireland’s Celtic Nights, and New York jazz vocalist José James have all graced the venue’s stage to enrich the community. However, ARTS also nurtures and showcases the top talents of the Lone Star State, from hosting local piano virtuosos to teaching visual and performing arts to students and senior citizens.
