Missy Higgins

Wednesday, September 28; the Pageant (6161 Delmar Boulevard)

Missy Higgins

At age seventeen, sprightly Missy Higgins won Australian radio station JJJ's prestigious "Unearthed" demo contest with the first song she ever wrote. Four years later, her jazzy folk-pop has earned her pending Aussie icon status up there with Kylie. While her work as a songwriter leans toward the melodramatic, the familiar stories of love, hope and heartache she weaves find uniqueness in the wide vowels of her Melbourne accent, lyrics as complicated and charming as her smile, and plenty of Aussie bluntness. "Don't Ever" and "Ten Days" are concert jewels, but "The Special Two" is Higgins at her best and most deliciously angsty.

Show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25; call 314-726-6161 for more information.
