San Francisco: Places to go, people to see

Rolling Stone called her “Tina Turner, Bessie Smith, Janis Joplin and Robert Plant all rolled up into a tiny but explosive package.”

She’s also a huge hit in her hometown of Austin, Texas, where she won a bunch of honors at this year’s Austin Music Awards, including Musician of the Year, Song of the Year, Best Rock Band and Best Female Vocalist.

She’s Patrice Pike, who hit the big time last year on the CBS reality show “Rock Star: Supernova.” Now on tour on the West Coast singing tunes from the TV show and from her new self-released album “Unraveling,” she plays tonight in San Francisco on a bill with Guy Forsyth (formerly of Asylum Street Spankers) and Gyllian Lozano.

The show is at 8 p.m. at the Red Devil Lounge, 1695 Polk St. Tickets are $10. Call (415) 921-1685 or visit www.reddevillounge.com for details.
