Deborah Coleman: The Virginia guitarist/vocalist initially was inspired by the Monkees. From there, she went on to play rock-head tunes in a series of cover bands, then gave up performance entirely for motherhood, which apparently gave her the blues--the good kind. Coleman's Blind Pig debut, I Can't Lose, showcases a solid, assured blueswoman with a swinging, stinging style reminiscent of the late Albert Collins. She performs at 9 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at the Rhythm Room, 1019 East Indian School. The cover is $5. Fordetails call 265-4842.
