Kate Earl 

Tuesday, November 1; the Gargoyle (on the campus of Washington University, Forsyth and Skinker boulevards)

Unburdened of the marked-for-death, gentle-rock stigma of James Taylor, Carly Simon and Phoebe Snow, a new generation of singer-songwriters have been quietly charting their own sensitivities without fear of grooves or electricity. Touchstones like Fiona Apple and Ani DiFranco -- and in the case of Kate Earl, a faint memory of Ricki Lee Jones' bohemia on pre-Clear Channel FM -- provide guidance. Raised in Alaska and musically refined in LA, Earl eschews pretension with her electric piano, soul strings and creamy enunciation -- and somehow never loses sight of her genuine, if still nascent, songwriting talent.

Show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 (free for Wash. U. students); call 314-935-5917 for more information.
