Kelly Willis 

Tuesday, November 1; the VooDoo Lounge (in Harrahs Casino, 777 Casino Center Drive, Maryland Heights)

If deep-throat lot lizards such as Gretchen Wilson have sucked you in of late, Kelly Willis St. Louis appearance offers welcome respite. This well-scrubbed, red-headed sprite from Oklahoma can be summed up by the title of her sensational 2002 release, Easy: easy on the ears, easy on the eyes and easy to fall for on her infrequent trips out of her current hometown of Austin, where shes busy raising a young brood of kids with her husband, Bruce Robison (himself an adroit singer-songwriter). Not What I Had in Mind, a duet with Alison Krauss (always a nice touch) from the aforementioned Easy, is one of the most gorgeous country weepers recorded in recent memory. Willis voice is so warm and rich that youre apt to get goose pimples.

Show starts at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are free; call 314-770-8100 for more information.
