Unless you count the one song she sang at the Mon- days Dark year-end show at the Joint in December, Friday night marks AJ Lambert's first performance in Las Vegas, which is a big deal considering Lambert is the granddaughter of Frank Sinatra. She'll be performing his pioneering 1955 concept album In the Wee Small Hours at the Space, and continuing with monthly gigs there throughout 2018, rotat- ing that LP with performanc- es of Ol' Blue Eyes' 1958 classic Only the Lonely. Lambert has always been a musician, but she hasn't always been a singer, so she waited for the right time to tackle the family material. "I had to have a voice to use. To sing stuff like what I'm do- ing now, especially, it helps to have a little life behind you," she says. "And I didn't want to do the typical tribute stuff, even though it would be easier and people would get it quickly, because I don't feel like I can do those songs in a way that would be hon- est. It doesn't make sense to me to sing 'High Hopes,' for the person I am and the singer I am and what I'm trying to communicate about him." $35. –Brock Radke AJ LAMBERT AT THE SPACE A L E G A C Y I N S O N G 12 L o o k i n g f o R E v E n M o R E T o d o ?
