ideacity Presents Jill Sobule Live in Concert at Zoomer Hall: Nov 29
70 Jefferson Ave, Toronto, ON M6K 3H4, Canada
"Jill Sobule can claim her place among the stellar New York singer-songwriters of the last decade. Topical, funny and more than a little poignant." --- NY TIMES
"Jill is a one-woman band, a record label, and performer all wrapped up. She does these story songs which are beyond charming, but you have to be careful because they do have a certain kind of bite. All I can say is that this is witty adult music for an adolescent age." --- Moses Znaimer
"Nostalgia Kills (her latest album) is a collection of some luscious pop tunes, written by someone who really knows their craft." --- PopMatters.com
Known as the "'I Kissed a Girl' girl," Denver native Jill Sobule has been on the international radar of songwriting fans since 1995 when she landed "I Kissed a Girl" and "Supermodel," on the soundtrack of the hit film "Clueless."
For good reason, her fan base has been following and fuelling her projects ever since. Jill Sobule first graced the stage at Moses Znaimer's ideacity conference in Toronto in 2008, and again in 2019, singing about such topics as aging, love, immigration, mushrooms, shoplifting, and reproduction.
