The Kat's M.E.O.W.
-- that's short for Music Empowering Ohio's Women -- is a night out with the girls, and these are the area's top eight women that you'd want to spend a night out with, assuming you're into reverent but thoroughly modern takes on the blues. As a benefit for the women's shelter Genesis House, Elyria jam-night hot spot Tommy Rockers
will host singer Mary Bridget Davies,
trumpet diva-singer Kristine Jackson
(of Basically Blue, pictured), singer-songwriters Angel Foss
& Megan Clay
, and other notables.
