The Spring 2009 Hat Trick Concert Series continues TONIGHT with Paleface! Schooled personally by Daniel Johnston, Paleface was discovered at an NYC open mic in 1990.

This show benefits the DAAC (Division Ave. Arts Cooperative), representing the community with open and accessible involvement through art and music, valuing new and different creative perspectives. That's Paleface, at One Trick Pony, TONIGHT at 7:30pm. The Hat Trick Concert series is sponsored by the law firm of Rhoades McKee, with audio support from Mark Swanson and lodging provided by Peaches Bed & Breakfast.

a note about this track

Bettye LaVette (born Betty Haskins in Muskegon, Michigan, January 29, 1946) is an American soul singer who cut her first record at 16, but achieved only intermittent fame until her 2005 record, I've Got My Own Hell to Raise. Her style combines elements of blues, country, rock, soul, funk, and gospel, which has prevented her from being easily marketed.
