BLUES | Carolyn Wonderland 

All it took was for me to hear this flame-haired lady's take on Rick Derringer's "Still Alive and Well" and I was a goner. Wonderland is a double threat: on guitar as well as her vocal testimony. Comparisons to Janis Joplin get tossed about, and they make sense, but honestly she's better than Joplin. There, I said it: Carolyn Wonderland is better than Janis Joplin. Wonderland may live in Austin, but her guitar owns the sky.

Carolyn Wonderland plays two nights, on Wednesday, April 12, and Thursday, April 13, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 9 p.m. $25-$30. abilenebarandlounge.com; carolynwonderland.com.
