Nellie McKay is reviving her A Girl Named Bill - The Life and Times of Billy Tipton show for a spring 2017 tour. The show is a "revue with dialogue" and is "the true story of Billy Tipton, a jazz musician who lived as a man from the time she was 19 until 'he' died at age 74 and was discovered to be female." Watch the trailer below.
Nellie also made us a playlist of "Songs to Walk Your Dog To - a song for every four-footed tempo." It includes Morrissey, Yoko Ono, Mimi & Richard Farina, and more. (You may want to add Nellie's own "The Dog Song" to this.) Listen to the whole thing below.
