Nellie McKay
Sat, May 9, 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Nellie McKay has a new album and she's ready to...storm the Bastille! Covering classic pop tunes from the 1960s, McKay brings alive the era when protest didn't seem pointless, without ever losing her sense of humor or pop smarts. She's on an extended tour and you don't want to miss her terrific live shows, where McKay's deadpan humor always threatens to -- but never quite -- gleefully upstage her musical chops. God knows if she wanted McKay could do stand-up, host a variety show or some day in my dreams run for President. (Though the PETA-friendly McKay might want to concede Texas right off the bat.) Catch her if you can and you'll be a fan for life." -- Michael Giltz, The Huffington Post April 12, 2015
It's true! The inimitable Nellie McKay returns to The Shedd for her FIFTH appearance, this time on her new tour in support of her latest CD, My Weekly Reader (March 24, 2015), another wonderful McKay piece of work, this time a set of ’60s covers that has her taking on songs by The Beatles, The Kinks, Crosby Stills & Nash, Small Faces, Frank Zappa, Herman’s Hermits, Steve Miller Band, Richard & Mimi Farina, Moby Grape, Country Joe McDonald, Gerry & the Pacemakers, The Cyrcle and Alan Price.
Well, there you go. As always, all we really need to say is that if you don't know Nellie McKay, you are REALLY missing something...and that you've just GOT to check her out. An evening with Nellie McKay is always one heck of an evening.
