Alanis Morissette

Turns out that “Jagged Little Pill” wasn’t too hard to swallow after all: The third studio album from hair-flinging fireball Alanis Morissette remains one of the more indelible soundtracks of mid-’90s alt-pop angst, having sold more than 33 million copies. Twenty-four years later, Morissette has mellowed a bit, if the same can’t be said of her rabid fan base. See her at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday at The Pearl at the Palms. Tickets are $54.95 to $259.95; call 702-944-3200.
