Liz Phair

Liz Phair's Exile in Guyville is, hands down, one of the most awesome albums of all time. Seriously, how kick-ass do you have to be to pull off a song-for-song response to the Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street? It’s hard to believe, but 15 years have passed since Phair made her brutally honest and sexually explicit debut in indie rock. Harder to believe still is that she's a 41-year-old mother (she's hotter than ever) who's back on tour to promote the 15th-anniversary reissue of Guyville. (She's also working on an untitled sixth album.) I just about died of happiness when her schedule was finally updated to include Seattle. Phair's fans have patiently waited for this moment for years, so you'd be wise to show up early if you want a decent seat. Showbox at the Market, 1426 FirstAve., 628-3151, www.showboxonline.com. $25-$27. 21 and over. 8 p.m. ERIKA HOBART
