Melissa Etheridge 

When: Thu., Aug. 28, 8 p.m. 2008
Price: $36-$101

With the coming and going of the obvious marketing ploy that was the women in rock movement of the last decade, Melissa Etheridge is one of those few, genuine women who, uh, rock. Arguments can be made for names like Sheryl Crow (more of a soft rock-flavored singer-songwriter) and Bonnie Raitt (who plays the blues like few others, male or female), but Etheridge is the closest to a heartland rocker along the lines of a Mellencamp or Petty. And with the release of The Awakening, a self-described concept album rooted in the personal journey stemming from Etheridge's 2004 cancer diagnosis, expect the now-healthy Kansas native to come out firing on all pistons the Paramount Theatre (2025 Broadway, Oakland) on Thursday, Aug. 28. 8 p.m., $36-$101.
