AASO kicks off new
season with tailgate
Saturday night, the Ann Arbor
Symphony Orchestra opens its
first season with new director
Samuel Wong (who, incidentally,
:won't take up the baton until
:October 3). And, as if they were a
football team or something,
they're staging an "Ultimate
Tailgate III," which, as near as
we can tell, is a great place to get
wine from a box. Those of you a
tad less experimental in your
classical taste will be relieved to
hear that there's an afterglow
following the concert. Tailgate
starts at 5:30, concert at 8, and
afterglow after. Call 763-TKTS
about the concert, and 994-4801
about anything else.

WEBSTER

could sing - if a record came out
with her name on it, she might have
been the first performer in history
to be grounded by her parents for
making it in show-biz. Playing keys
behind Slim Harpo ("I'm a King
Bee") and Zydeco king Clifton
Chenier was enough excitement for
young Katie. She even successfully
hid all the money she made by
stuffing it inside of a bean can
which she kept underneath the steps
in her house.
"My parents didn't realize I was
making these records until I was
seventeen years old," she said.
"That was when I had long left
home. I had gotten married, and
was going to school, and was going
into Louisiana on the weekends,
and was playing with a band in
Beaumont, Texas six nights a
week."
Obviously, the Websters were
not pleased with Katie "straddling
the fence," playing in both rock 'n'
roll and gospel situations. "They
thought I was going to end up being
a drug addict or an alcoholic," she
said, "but I don't know what a regu-
lar cigarette tastes like. I've never
messed around with any hard, ille-

gal drugs or hard liquor; Just juices
and tea."
When she appeared on a San
Francisco TV show in the early
'70s, she performed Sam Cooke's
"A Change is Gonna Come." Her
parents were at home watching TV
that night, and Katie said, "They
happened to turn the channel to
where I was singing. When I came
back home, my mother told me that
she had never heard that song
played so beautifully in her life
with such a gospel flavor. She said,
'That let us know that you never
strayed away from your gospel
training.' That was when they ac-
cepted why I do what I do."
Webster's comeback a few years
ago has led to three excellent al-
bums on Alligator, including her
latest, "No Foolin." Longtime fans
of hers, such as Robert Cray, Raitt
and many others have contributed
to her records. Hopefully, the
"Two-Fisted Mama" will be putting
her dukes up to the keys for many
more years to come.
KATIE WEBSTER appears at the
Ann Arbor Blues and Jazz Festival
tonight at Crisler Arena. Tickets
are $22.50 and $18.50. Call 99-
MUSIC or 645-6666 for informa-
tion.

°of Veronique," showing in the
Natural Science Auditorium at 7,
8:40, and 10:15, follows the lives
of two women (both played by
Irene Jacob), one in Krakow and
on in Paris, who, go figure, look
remarkably alike and were born
on the same day. OK, that's way
out there on the credibility scale,
but if you want real life, don't go
the the movies!
