GET OUT! / Hot Ticket

You don't hear many 19-year-olds saying, "It sure would be nice of the media paid more attention to timeless music like the blues." Of course, Shemekia Copeland, who said it, isn't any 19-year-old. She's the daughter of bluesman Johnny Copeland and a rising blues artist in her own right. The singer, whom her father nicknamed "Bootsy," plays tonight in Santa Ana, returning to the county after appearing here in February.


* Galaxy Concert Theatre, 3503 S. Harbor Blvd., Santa Ana. 8 p.m. With Mama's Boys and the Blue Spirit Band. $17-$19. (714) 957-0600.
