Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The multitalented Martin, a chameleonic performer with a killer voice, is a significant player in the downtown alt-cabaret scene. In this Joe's Pub series, she showcases her powerful voice in three shows devoted to great American songstresses. In Janis: Undead (July 26), Martin honors the legacy of blues-rock wailer Janis Joplin; in Bathbouse Bette (August 10) she revisists the early years of Bette Midler's career, when she built a gay following in the bowels of New York; and in Stoned Soul (September 7), she pays tribute to the distinctive singer-songwriter Laura Nyro, whose best-loved hits include “Wedding Bell Blues,” “And When I Die” and “Eli’s Coming.”
