Sam Shaber at SOhO on Tuesday

THROATY GIRL SONGWRITER COMES TO TOWN: Some of the best live albums out there don’t take place in a big ampitheatre or arena, but in tiny venues, where you can hear just about every audience member clapping or spilling their drinks in the background. shaber.jpg Sam Shaber’s In My Bones (Live in Chicago) is such an album. Shaber sounds like a grown-up, female version of Jason Mraz, with less of the verbal showiness of Mraz and her own brand of throaty girl-ballads. If the CD is any indication, it’ll be a great show at SOhO, Tuesday, October 24. —Sarah Hammill
