"These days, buying a ticket to a Lauryn Hill concert is basically like buying a lottery ticket-you're either going to end up a little more broke and a little more bitter than yesterday, or you're going to strike gold. No question, Ms. Lauryn Hill is volatile. Her tours from recent years are littered with scathing reports of her chronic tardiness, distant affect, and inscrutable renditions. Reports from this tour have been somewhat mixed, but in general one of the greatest artists of the '90s has returned to form."  -- Courtney Harrell, Denver's Westworld.com 
The Grammy winning rapper, singer, producer and former Fugees star Lauryn Hill is back on the road, including an upcoming show at Iroquois Amphitheatre on July 22. She has some need to work, having rather recently been in Federal prison for non-payment on income taxes, with the result penalites and such adding up to a considerable sum, which she has paid off. Be that as it may, the 1998 album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill remains her landmark (and only) solo effort, having sold some eight million copies and earning her five Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year and Best New Artist. Following all that success, she dropped out public view to live a private life, only performing occasionally. In 2010, she returned to the stage, playing a few festivals and shows. Her tax evasions charges derailed that. Her current tour is with the agreement of the judge. Tickets to the show are $50, $60 and $80.

e Dreamland venue was established specifically to book acts not otherwise likely to find gigs in Louisville. Naturally,  this includes some of the more exotic jazz combos, which is pretty much the subtagline for the July 23 show, a tour entitled "Washington D.C. Jazz Collective Night" and featuring Aaron Quinn's Liver Quiver, Sarah Hughes Saxophone Quartet, Brad Linde's Underwater Ghost and Billy Wolfe's Composer's Octet. Various of these groups will play separately and together, mix and match style. This is so far outside this writer's area of expertise that I'll just leave it at that. Tickets are $7.

Here's Sarah Hughes playing with the Brad Linde Quartet:

Austin's favorite singer/songwriter, Bob Schneider, returns to Louisville for the second time this year with a show the Mercury Ballroom. A man of diverse backgrounds (he grew up in Germany) and eclectic inclinations in music, which include funk, country, rock and folk (and maybe some lieder?), he is a recording maniac, having a released more records since 2000 than most musicians do in an entire career, not counting the recording and release of every concert he plays. He's good at it, apparently - he has won twenty-four Austin Music Awards. His most well-known song is "40 Dogs (Like Romeo and Juliet)," which reached #14 on the AAA Radio Chart. He also has scored a number of soundtrack placements, including "Big Blue Sea" in the movie "Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood." He has an audience in Louisville, too. He's headed to the Mercury on July 24, with Dawn & Hawkes opening. Tickets are $18.50 plus $4.50 if you buy them online.

Take a look at "Swimming In The Sea":
