MADELEINE PEYROUX Vocalist Madeleine Peyroux brings her Billie Holiday-esque style to the McGlohon Theatre while touring in support of 2011's Standing on the Rooftop. Her vocals, often set against sparse backdrops, are the centerpiece of her recordings. She hesitates to break out of her comfort zone in favor of keeping to traditional jazz avenues on reimagined blues and jazz covers, though Rooftop finds her taking in hints of folk and roots music. With Nellie McKay opening. $34.50-$39.50. A $1 fee will be added to every ticket purchased as a donation to the United Family Services Shelter for Battered Women. McGlohon Theatre.
