She’s performed on Broadway, NPR’s “Tiny Desk” concert series and the big screen. (You might recognize her from the 2007 romantic drama “P.S. I Love You.”) She’s drawn acclaim for her musical performance in a revival of “The Threepenny Opera,” as well as in the off-Broadway hit “Old Hats.” McKay’s seventh studio album, “Sister Orchid,” will be released May 18. See her perform before that at Arden Gild Hall on Friday, April 20 (tickets available here).

If you want a better world for the most harmed and exploited among us—which are the animals and the people who live in misery around the world—you need a different system where people can live with dignity. We can have universal basic income, single-parent healthcare, universal childcare, a living wage […T]hese things would go so far to creating a more equal society.
