Lisa Loeb


With cat-eye glasses, dark dresses, and a “Rachel” haircut (plus the fact that she crafted the leading hit among a sudden post-grunge wave of female singer-songwriters), Lisa Loeb had no way of avoiding the possibility of staking her claim as a cultural landmark of the 1990s. Fast-forward to now and we’re all still listening to “Stay (I Missed You),” watching Reality Bites, and loving Loeb’s earnest voice and relatable lyrics, as represented on her newest album No Fairy Tale. Catch her at Highline Ballroom and hop right on to that ’90s nostalgia train.
