Nellie McKay

Nellie McKay packages feminist, pro--animal rights and antiwar sentiments into sugarcoated piano pop with jazz, Latin and hip-hop influences. This style, along with her charming humor, makes her weighty subject matter easier to swallow. Whether she’s raging against the machine or singing an ode to her dead cat, the Brit-born songstress will have you smiling — even if she has to drop a couple of F-bombs along the way. 8 p.m. Warehouse Live, 813 St. Emanuel. For tickets and information, call 713-225-5483 or visit www.warehouselive.com. $10.
Tue., Aug. 5, 8 p.m., 2008
