JANIS IAN Saugatuck Center for the Arts - Bertha Krueger Reid Theatre Sept. 8, 8 p.m.; $35 sc4a.org, (269) 857-2399


JANIS IAN WILL NOT GO AWAY. In four de- cades as an artist, the singer/songwriter has endured hate mail, a nationwide radio ban of her music, near bankruptcy and countless phoenixian comebacks. With the blameless honesty of a 14 year old, her career as a scathing social critic began with her first release, Society’s Child, which tells a story of forbidden interracial romance. Think a chilled-out Lady Gaga and Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) hop the redeye time


machine to 1965 and record Born This Way. Despite a nationwide radio ban, the song rocketed to No. 1 on wavelengths of wandering guitar melody, and suddenly, the mellow-voiced adolescent found herself kicking it with the likes of Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. After being written off as a child prodigy one-hit-wonder Ian struck back with At Seventeen, a “Teenage Wasteland”-esque anthem for disaffected youth to the tune of two Grammy awards. Following a 10-year professional hiatus and messy divorce, Ian went Facebook-official with an updated sexual orientation status via 1993’s Breaking Silence, earning her a ninth Grammy nod. Saugatuck being the friendly city it is, expect a warm reception for this one night stand. Like Muse at Wembley Stadium. Or Ozzy in Hell. Reported by Tyler DeJong
