Madeleine Peyroux, Nellie McKay 

When: Wed., May 16 2012
Price: $34.50-$39.50
NELLIE MCKAY Since she took a stab at stand-up before following her idiosyncratic muse, Nellie McKay might appreciate this joke: Q: “How may feminists does it take to screw in a light bulb?” A: “That’s not funny!” McKay is a devoted feminist, as well as a committed environmentalist and animal rights activist, but she sees the world through a sarcastic, slyly acidic lens. Stylistically, she’s all over the map of our obligatory global village. Contemporary pop jostles with torch songs, Brill building throwbacks and Doris Day covers, while her sophisticated jazz-pop vocals serve as stealth bomber for wicked parody and dark satire. Harkening back to an old fashioned all-around entertainer, McKay also beams us cabaret from the future. With Madeline Peyroux. (Pat Moran)
