Though it might be tempting to stay home tomorrow night and embrace the melancholy void left by The Sopranos, I'd like to suggest an alternative that'll at least get you out of the house. A little more than a year after playing a hypnotic set at the Hotel Cafe, Israeli-born French chanteuse Keren Ann will be performing Sunday evening at the Troubadour. Though initially known for her gorgeous, laid-back French songs, her last three albums--including her first eponymous and fifth solo album released last month--have added some English offerings to her oeuvre.

Tomorrow night's show will probably include songs from all five albums, but whether or not you speak French is inconsequential; her voice is seductive no matter what the language.

Doors will open at 8 p.m. and tickets are still available for purchase through Ticketmaster. For those unable to make it to the concert, Keren Ann will be performing on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic program at 11:15 a.m. on Monday morning.
