  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less “Three Women & the Truth”

Performance by Southern country-rock singer-songwriters Mary Gauthier, Eliza Gilkyson, and Gretchen Peters, a trio of critics' darlings who in a more astute world would each also be household names. Gauthier specializes in vividly detailed, sharply observed songs about people on the edge that one critic has dubbed "country noir." She's also known for the luminous purity of her singing, and she has a widely acclaimed new CD, Rifles & Rosary Beads. Gilkyson is known for searchingly honest introspective songs that blend arresting lyrics with catchy melodies and she sings in what the New York Times calls a "lush and passionate voice." Peters, whose songs have been covered by everyone from Faith Hill and Patty Loveless to Neil Diamond and Etta James, writes incisively resonant country-pop songs "[Her] music has the sweet ache of 1970s Tom Waits, while the lyrics pack an extraordinary amount of story-telling into five minutes," says the Financial Times.
8 p.m., The Ark, 316 S. Main. Tickets $25 in advance at the Michigan Union Ticket Office & theark.org, and at the door. To charge by phone, call 763-TKTS. [map]
