Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get two general-admission tickets to see Carolyn Wonderland at Neighborhood Theatre on Friday, October 28, at 8 p.m. (up to a $24 value). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Hailing from Texas, blues-rock virtuoso Carolyn Wonderland regales audiences with her precise plucking and soulful pipes. The multi-instrumentalist also pounds out piano riffs and exudes brassy gusts from her trumpet, building songs around a powerful voice that she acquired in a former life as an auctioneer. On national tours, Wonderland has shared stage space with such notable acts as Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, and Robert Earl Keen while garnering comparisons to Janis Joplin and her evil yet talented arch nemesis Jonis Japlin.
