defies musical

preconceptions

To offset people's inevitable pre-
conceptions about women's music,
I'll start this preview with the stan-
dard women's music disclaimer: al-
though Deidre McCalla is an
outspoken lover of women, her mu-
sic appeals to a broader audience than
the lesbian/feminist community. She
is not intolerant or judgmental about
I hate to label McCalla a
"women s musician"; her
two albums defy labels.

Dissecting a
murder
On a summer night in
1982, Ron Ebens, an
unemployed autoworker,
beat Vincent Chin (right)
to death with a baseball bat
in a parking lot outside a
topless bar. Although the
murder itself was brutal
enough, the issues arising
from it - racial bigotry
and the frustrations of a
flawed legal system - are
uglier still (See interview
in today's Weekend
magazine). The Chin
controversy is examined in
"Who Killed Vincent
Chin," a documentary
which examines Chin's
death and the social factors
contributing to it. The film
will be shown at 7 p.m.
Saturday at the Rackham
Amphitheater.

others' lifestyles. Thank you.
Four years ago, Deidre McCalla
was late for her first Ann Arbor ap-
pearance. Ark manager Dave Siglin
was nervously asking anyone coming
in if they were the artist. When the
woman with the guitar finally
showed up, 15 minutes before her
set, she explained to the 12 people
who had come to see her that her
Greyhound bus had been held up by
an ice storm. The few of us there ex-
perienced one of the best folk con-
certs of the year.
Since that night, McCalla has
come close to becoming a star. She
now has her own road manager, plays
to considerably more than twelve
people, and gets to drive to her
shows. She has also progressed from
Daystage to Mainstage at the Michi-
:gan Womyn's Music Festival. (Tracy
Chapman played there in 1987 and
,look where she is now.)
I hate to label McCalla a
-"women's musician"; her two al-
bums defy labels. Ranging ,from
sweet, slow ballads to rock to reggae,
Don't Doubt It and With a Little
Luck (Olivia Records) show off her
skill as singer and songwriter. Both
of these albums were nominated for
New York Music Awards for Best
Sarah Lawr

Barring any ice storms, Deidre McCalla's wide-ranging
musical catalog should impress fans at the Ark tonight.

It's Our Lucky 7th Birthdaz

Album on an Independent Label.
Yes, the records are excellent, but
her strong, silky voice is better
experienced live. Deidre McCalla is a
professional performer and knows her
craft well. With her charisma, she
establishes an easy rapport with the
audience. She relates the stories be-
hind the songs - taking her mother
to a women's music festival, hating
a lover's cat, or living too far away
from loved ones.
And these stories, along with her
talent, should win over many -
even those with preconceptions.
DEIDRE McCALLA will appear at 8
p.m. tonight at the Ark. Tickets are
$8 for non-members, $7 for members
and students.
