Nellie McKay, who was nice enough to play the opening night reception for the Chris La Putt photo retrospective at IDIO Gallery (the show closed last night, hope you went), always has a lot of shows on her schedule, including this Sunday (1/24) at City Winery which is the 'An Evening of Songs Benefiting Bailey House w/ Special Guests' that also features Rufus Wainwright and more (tickets).
Before that, Nellie will perform at Lincoln Center's Appel Room on Thursday (1/21) as part of "Is That All There Is? Remembering Peggy Lee." Hosted by biographer James Gavin, the night also features Spencer Day, Barb Jungr, Rebecca Parris, and Lee's longtime pianist-conductor Mike Renzi. Tickets are on sale.
McKay will also perform at Town Hall on February 22 as part of the venue's "Broadway by the Year" series. This one is dedicated to Broadway Musicals of the 1930s and also features Annaleigh Ashford, Tonya Pinkins, Emily Skinner and Noah Racey. Tickets are on sale.
Nellie's got other East Coast dates coming up, and a show in Berkeley, CA in April. All dates are listed, along with a video of her performing "Clonie" at a TEDTalk, below.
