JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED >>>

After a month of changes, a couple special sections and a design intricate Tacoma Film Festival program, all I want to do is kick back with some sweet-ass music. No jostling. Certainly no shoe-gaze or cry in my beer melodies. I want sit sink into a couch to a great voice with a bit of grit ... and a glass of wine.

It seems as if the Great Road God has delivered. Singer/songwriter Kelley McRae - and her big brown VW camper van loaded with her entire life - will roll into Tacoma today with a long set list of Brooklyn-by-way-of Mississippi life experiences to share.

McRae quit her job, sold everything and hit the road with her driver/husband/guitarist Matt Castelein playing house shows, coffee houses and any venue that will have her across the country - including Tacoma's Mandolin Café tonight at 6.

The traveling songstress - and one-time actress - skips the sensitive singer-songwriter show, insteadbelts out country-influenced torch songs with R&B accents that wouldn't sound out of place on a Neko Case or Ani DiFrancoalbum.

Perfect.

Kelley McRae
