Nellie McKay at Outland

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Nellie McKay can’t be put in a box. A performer of many stripes, she’s done standup comedy and won awards for acting on Broadway, not to mention compiling a truly mercurial catalog of music.

“Home Sweet Mobile Home,” her latest volume, plays more like a collection of loosely related stories than a series of chapters from the same book. But for all the diversity on an album that hops from reggae-lite to McCartney pop to minor-key rock, McKay’s voice and personality are a suitable unifying factor.

Super Desserts will open Friday’s show at Outland.
