Liz Phair to perform at Rams Head Live in January

After performing in Washington D.C. earlier this month, it turns out Liz Phair will stop in Baltimore as well. 

She'll play Rams Head Live January 25, when Brooklyn four piece Harper Blynn will open. 

Phair announced the East Coast tour dates earlier this month. Tickets for the Baltimore show are now on sale.

The singer, who's just released album "Funstyle," credits Keith Richards for sending her back on the road. 

Famous for having stage fright, she said his memoir made her excited about performing live again. Earlier this year, she wrote a great review of the book for the New York Times.

Fans will be happy to know she isn't skipping "Exile in Guyville" at her live shows, or at least she didn't at the 9:30 club show earlier this month. Though those who like her early output are warned "Why Can't I" is also in the rotation.

Next year's tour dates follow:
