The current lionization of '90s artists is bound to have some huge blind spots in its already myopic view of the past. One musician in particular who has been unjustly left on the periphery is Barbara Manning. The Bay Area-based singer/songwriter came up through the underground rock and experimental scenes, bringing her uncluttered lyrics and crystal-clear voice to bands like 28th Day and World of Pooh, but she truly blossomed as a solo artist and as the leader of the band SF Seals. In each case, she explored the familiar joys and fallouts of personal relationships while dabbling in longform musical narratives—like the startling "Arsonist Story" that kicked off 1212, her fantastic 1997 album—and a keen ear for great songs to cover. Her live appearances, especially in Portland, are rare, so tonight's performance should be very special indeed. ROBERT HAM
