    Alice Smith brings her powerful vocals to Joe's Pub.

    Alice Smith writes music that's hard to pin down -- it's funk, rock, punky, jazzy and, in a word, complicated -- but one thing never changes: The girl can sing.

    Critics fawned over her debut For Lovers, Dreamers & Me a coupe years ago, and she was nominated for an urban/alternative Grammy, but this New Yorker still hasn't quite become a household name. Go hear her blow the roof off the joint at Joe's Pub on May 29. Last time we caught her live, she slipped in a goosebump-inducing funk cover of Heart's Alone that sealed the deal for any nonbelievers in the audience.

    Alice Smith, 5/29, 8PM
    Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette Street at Astor Place, (212) 967-7555
    Cost: $20
