Joan Baez
Sun. Nov. 24 | The folk singer and activist isn't on the cutting edge of cultural change like she was when she played the Newport Folk Festival in 1959. But she performed at the festival on the 50th anniversary of that show (and dropped by Occupy Wall Street in 2011). She's at One Eyed Jacks at 8 p.m.
