CEG Presents: Nellie McKay
A critically acclaimed songstress + comedienne
Nellie McKay is nothing if not a displaced old soul. Her 2009 album was a collection of Doris Day covers and listening to her feels like putting on a Cole Porter record. But the ukulele-strumming chanteuse has modern appeal too. You can hear her ditties on Mad Men, Weeds, Grey’s Anatomy, and you may have already seen her on the big screen in PS I Love You. When asked if she’d be a sex symbol, à la Britney, she countered, "I’ll go the Garbo route." Considered us charmed. General admission. Over 21s only. Seating in the venue is first come, first served.
"In concert, McKay is funny and touching, ceaselessly clever and scarily talented."
