Julie Mack

Even though you sometimes wonder why you keep that Rusty concert T-shirt, with its holes and mystery stains, it's very simple: the familiar brings comfort. And Ms. Mack, hailing from sunny San Diego, certainly brings forth the familiar, with her striking looks, acoustic guitar and strong, able voice. With song subjects ranging from her time in Toronto to odes to her child, it was all very standard fare ably delivered. While no epiphanies were to be had, the oasis of calm was much needed.
