In terms of female representation, the blues makes rock music look like an egalitarian promised land, especially when it comes to leading roles. But Serbian dynamo Ana Popović packs the skills and cred to tilt the scales back toward the ladies.

With blazing guitar virtuosity and a long list of international honors, she runs with the big dogs of modern blues.

Popović's last studio album, 2018’s Like It On Top, was produced and features appearances by blues legend Keb’ Mo’, who will himself come to town to perform on Feb. 11 at the Dr. Phillips Center’s Frontyard Festival.



But as the title of her 2020 release Live for Live proves, the stage is what Popović lives for. So when she plugs in at the New Standard on Wednesday, expect a prime display of guitar heroics that will drop jaws and blow up the boys club.
The show starts at 8 p.m. Advance tickets for $20 are available through Eventbrite or pay $25 at the door.

If you go out, respect everyone’s distance, for all our sakes.
