Rock & Pop, All Ages

Joan Armatrading

When: Tue., Aug. 10, 7:30 p.m. 2010

Joan Armatradinghas long been known for the simmering soulfulness of her vocals and the quiet restraint of her music. She shocked some fans with her 2007 venture Into the Blues, but really knocked them for a loop with this year's opus This Charming Life, an album of hard rocking tunes, all full of searing electric guitar work. The soul is still there, undiminished by the volume of the music. So it will be interesting to see what happens when the sixty-year-old singer displays her older tunes in this new rockin' format. Joan Armatrading plays Saturday, August 10, at the Palace of Fine Arts (3301 Lyon St., San Francisco). 8 p.m., $40, $65, $100
