This underexposed performer is meant to be experienced live and in person, which, luckily, is exactly how you can hear her on Tuesday, July 1, at 9 p.m. Admission is $15; call 771-1421 or visit www.theindependentsf.com
Though she may be another diminutive white Brit with a soul-drenched, powerhouse voice and a penchant for moody blues, expect no trainwreck behavior or subpar performances from Alice Russell. She guest-starred on two albums by Quantic Soul Orchestra, and her own albums (2004's Under The Munka Moon and 2006's Under The Munka Moon Vol. 2) are rare imports. Last year's Live in Paris DVD is another coveted commodity, though snippets from that show, including her cover of White Stripes' "Seven Nation Army," are posted on YouTube.
