Singer-songwriter Jill Sobule has used controversial topics like the death penalty, anorexia and shoplifting to catch the attention of a wide range of audiences. Over seven albums, her unique sense of humor and courage has been notorious for discussing several issues considered by many too taboo for the mainstream music industry. This has not stopped her from making a name for herself, however. With the help of donations from fans, she has been able to fund her own records. Sobule will be performing at Music At The Mission in West Milford on Oct. 16. Tickets are $25 and doors open at 7:30 p.m.
