SINGER-SONGWRITER | Crystal Bowersox 

The ninth season of "American Idol" may as well have been called "American Tragedy," after Lee DeWyze somehow won over Crystal Bowersox, who was head and shoulders above the rest of the cast talent-wise. She has a voice and aura that call to mind Janis Joplin, and her performances of "Me and Bobby McGee" and "Piece of My Heart" can stand up to those by Joplin herself. If you think she's just a cover artist though, you'd be mistaken. Her song "Farmer's Daughter" really showcases the versatility and range in her voice. She carries a reputation as a great live performer, so this a show fans of folk and country won't want to pass up.

Crystal Bowersox plays along with Patrick Jaouen Wednesday, April 2, 8 p.m. at Zeppa Auditorium, 315 Gregory St. $25-$50. Waterstreetmusic.com.
