Nellie McKay will revisit "I Want To Live!" at a show on June 30th at Joe's Pub. "I Want To Live!" is a biography of Barbara Graham, "the third woman to die in the gas chamber at San Quentin". Sunny stuff! Tickets are still available.

Nellie McKay performed on Saturday at the 25th annual Farm Sanctuary gala at Cipriani

"While some others might have been enjoying a big hearty sirloin, on Saturday, those devoted to the proper treatment of farm animals--people like the '80s actor Corey Feldman, the '80s actress Ally Sheedy, the singer-songwriter Nellie McKay and Tom and Kathy Freston--gathered at Cipriani Wall Street for the 25th anniversary gala of Farm Sanctuary.

...Farm Sanctuary's goals include protecting farm animals from cruelty and promoting "compassionate vegan living" -[Wall Street Journal]

If you haven't heard of Farm Sanctuary, check it out. It's an amazing place that does amazing things, and... it's a great place to go visit.

The NYC gala, which featured a 3-course gourmet, vegan meal, also featured apperances from Chevy Chase, Jesse Eisenberg, Eric Roberts, Russell Simmons, Fred Willard, and more as you can see in the pictures. More of them, along with all (two) Nelly McKay dates, and some songs, below...
