Let’s just be real honest here: I love Suzanne Vega, you love Suzanne Vega, every Revue minion who has ever minioned loves Suzanne Vega (even though some of them were born in the ‘90s, mercy). She’s more than just the artist who drew attention to the tragedy of child abuse. An award winning, indie rock iconoclast with more than 30 years in the industry, Vega is a force to be reckoned with, perhaps even more now than ever. This past year, she released her first album in almost a decade (the fancifully titled Tales from the Realm of the Queen of Penacles) and embarked on an ambitious supporting tour across the country. Sure, there are plenty of classics to be had on this live round, but Vega’s newer efforts are worth a fair listen, too. Trust us: you’re not going to want to luka the other way when Suzanne Vega rolls into town.
