Nellie McKay's music is where heartfelt cabaret meets biting wit. Her lyrics are often firmly tongue-in-cheek and usually accompanied with the pleasant sound of her ukulele.
McKay will perform on 7:30 p.m. Friday at World Records, 2815 F St.
The British-American singer and songwriter entered the scene in 2004 with her double album "Get Away From Me." She has won a Theatre World Award for her portrayal of Polly Peachum in "The Threepenny Opera." Her music has been used in "P.S. I Love You," "Weeds," "Boardwalk Empire," just to name a few.
Tickets, ranging from $30 to $35, can be purchased at World Records or by calling 325-1982. For more information visit shopworldrecords.com.
