Now's the Time: Nellie McKay
Man alive! New York-based Nellie McKay will make an unlikely appearance at Polsky Theatre on Friday, September 28. While she performs a convincingly swinging tribute to Kansas City jazz icon Jimmy Rushing in the embedded video, it would be misleading to suggest that the art/pop/cabaret artist will focus on jazz during her visit to Johnson County Community College. Concertgoers should expect to hear a set that more closely resembles McKay's Tiny Desk Concert for NPR.
