Best-known for the hits “I Kissed a Girl” and “Supermodel,” the prolific songwriter Jill Sobule surveys the scene with a subversive, playfully jaundiced eye, quietly taking everything that she writes about down a peg with a command of telling detail so subtle and crafty, you might fail to notice the irony if you are not paying close attention. The whole world is fair game, and it has kept Sobule fresh in material for a long time – which is not always the case with songwriters whose catalogues are unfairly reduced to a topical hit or two.
The ever-fresh Jill Sobule plays the boutique listening space of Unison in New Paltz on Friday, June 19 at 8 p.m. Advance tickets cost $24 general admission, $20 for Unison members, and $26 at the door, $22 for members. Students get in for half-price with a valid ID. Tickets can be purchased online at https://unisonarts.org or by calling (845) 255-1559.
