Nellie McKay


As New York as stop-and-frisk, this uke-slinging, piano-swinging avenger of the oppressed has never sounded better. Expect nuggets from throughout McKay’s remarkable oeuvre, which includes her Rachel Carson tribute “Silent Spring–It’s Not Nice to Fool Mother Nature,” her political-pop parfait of a latest album, Home Sweet Mobile Home, and random bursts of classic Americana from Dave Frishberg, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, Neil Young, and Charles Mingus.
