Crystal Bowersox may be a recognizable name largely due to American Idol (the country/folk artist took second place on the show in 2010), but going far on the show automatically means your first album after will get sent through a mainstream meatgrinder before hitting the streets. So while Farmer’s Daughter did OK, Bowersox’s really showing what she wants to do musically with her latest. All That For This, released on a major independent label, allows her to embrace a more authentic roots and soul sound. If you miss her at Stoughton, stay tuned: the bisexual singer will be one of the opening acts for Ani DiFranco at PrideFest Milwaukee.
At the Stoughton Opera House, Stoughton, Tickets are $32 and can be ordered at stoughtonoperahouse.ticketforce.com.
