Sunday is a great night for music if you like your women sassy and in charge. I think it's safe to call Melissa Etheridge a legend, and you can catch her ferocity at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay. In line with being fierce, singer ZZ Ward performs at the House of Blues. If her hit, "Put the Gun Down," hasn't become an earworm of the summer, I don't know what it is. I hear the song in my dreams, and sometimes I wonder if I should worry. She's sassy and a pretty amazing performer, especially considering her debut album barely dropped in 2012. If that's not enough, the enigmatic Tobacco perform at the Casbah. A founding member of Black Moth Super Rainbow, the band recorded Super Juicy in 2012, but they're a pretty mysterious bunch, so it isn't clear if this tour will be full of BMSR material or new solo material, but it is certain that Tobacco kees it weird and unpredictable, so for this show I can only say, expect everything and nothing, and it is certain to be memorable.
