(CHANDLER, AZ) Multi-talented artist Nellie McKay brings her renegade songs, charming melodies and cutting wit for an unforgettable concert in the intimate Hal Bogle Theatre at Chandler Center for the Arts on Saturday, February 8, at 7:30 pm.
McKay's silky voice and unpredictable music conjure images of another time, yet she sharply tunes her performance to the social consciousness of today, with witty, sometimes biting, lyrics.
“..funny and touching, ceaselessly clever and scarily talented.” – The New Yorker
