Fearless singer-songwriter Nellie McKay sets out to flabber your gast with a witty, unwieldy and beguiling blend of musical styles, ranging from Irving Berlin to Jimi Hendrix. One of the best young singer-songwriters in New York City, the fearless McKay has paid ironic, theatrical and fabulously bonkers tribute to a 1958 death-row movie, honored the legacy of environmentalist Rachel Carson and covered Doris Day. No telling what's in store for tonight's set in Evanston, but we can guarantee that you won't be unimpressed.
