While Jill Sobule made her first splash with mid-'90s hits like "I Kissed a Girl" and "Supermodel," Sobule has been improving her craft with each release. Her sunny, guitar-based pop is quirky, lyrically witty and quick, and often socially conscious.

Set List

  • "Where Is Bobbie Gentry?"
  • "Palm Springs"
  • "Cinnamon Park"
  • "The Rapture"
