Win Tix To See Madeleine Peyroux @ The Merriam

Gawd, this just effing slays me every time — it’s like Billie Holiday covering Elliott Smith in a midnight cafe in Occupied Paris. She’s passing along key intel (unmasking a double agent or somesuch) to the operative from The Resistance (she knows it’s him because he’s wearing the agreed upon red scarf) seated at table six. But she has to sing it in code so the SS swine seated in the VIP section don’t catch on. Vive le resistance! By ‘she,’ we of course mean Madeleine Peyroux, everyone’s favorite smoky-cool Franco-Americano chanteuse from Athens, GA, by way of The City Of Light. We have a pair of tix to see her at the Merriam Theater on Friday. To qualify, all you have to do is sign up for our mailing list (see right, below the masthead).
