You probably didn't know that former San Franciscan Lea DeLaria (a.k.a. Big Boo in Orange is the New Black) is both a stand-up comedian and a killer jazz singer. But for decades she's been gaining a significant cult following for her live performance talents.

This summer, she's on tour to promote her new album House of David, with a stop in her former hometown at SFJAZZ Center. DeLaria blends her fiery, fearless style of stand-up with songs from her most recent album, which features jazz reinventions of David Bowie classics.

Catch her at the SFJAZZ Center on Wednesday, June 13. Tickets range from $35–$95. 

And if that isn't enough star power for one summer, the San Francisco Symphony announced this week that Common will perform at Davies Symphony Hall this August!
