Thanks to the fine folks over at More Cowbell, I found out about Nellie McKay’s three-night stop in Minneapolis at the ultra-swank Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis, April 6th, 7th, and 8th

As it turns out, my wife Sherry wanted to be in town that weekend anyway to celebrate her birthday with her sister so it couldn’t happen at a better time. Plus, my daughter RaeEllen is a die-hard fan of Nellie ever since the first album. We called her at her dorm room tonight where she’s feeling a bit under-the-weather at the moment. But, she’s excited to see her at last. Nellie was in the Twin Cities late last year as part of the touring Christmas Show that Aimee Mann was doing. Unfortunately, that show didn’t work out for us, which is too bad because we’re fans of Aimee here at the Roeder house as well.

The show starts at 7PM and tickets for non-A Train members is $25.
