Wanda Jackson Tonight!

Everybody likes to talk about Wanda Jackson being Elvis’s boyfriend. OK, but she wasn’t just some hanger on. Jackson has always been a comet on her own trajectory.
From rockabilly to country to gospel and back, she’s now being introduced to a new generation of fans thanks to a recording collaboration with Jack White. Here’s what I wrote about her two years ago.
A few tickets still remain for her 7:30 appearance tonight at the Sportsmen’s Tavern backed by the Lustre Kings. She’s the genuine article—a smiling, snarling, shimmying rock-n-roll icon—just about to blow her top in a great little Black Rock bar.
So, let’s have a party!
