8pm

Pop Music

Jackie DeShannon was a modest pop goddess in the '60s, when she hit the Top 10 with Bacharach and David's "What the World Needs Now Is Love" and her own "Put a Little Love in Your Heart." But she proved to be more than a pretty face and voice, going on to write some 600 songs (including the Brit-pop/folk-rock staple "When You Walk in the Room" and the Kim Carnes blockbuster "Bette Davis Eyes") and become a model of creative independence. DeShannon marks the release of "You Know Me," her first album in nearly 20 years, with a return to the Sunset Strip.

* Jackie DeShannon, with Kara's Flowers, Bicycling Mariachis and Rooney & Melee, at the Whisky, 8901 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood. 8 p.m. $12. (310) 652-4202.
