Madeleine Peyroux is coming to the State Theater (Minneapolis) Oct. 13 (Friday!). Tickets cost us $50 after Ticketron adds on all the fees (and I’m printing my own tickets from a pdf to boot – how do they get away with this?).
NPR interviewed her two years ago and also put three of her songs online. Dance Me to the End of Love is my absolute favorite. It’s a really beautiful love song on one level but it also gets a bit dark on another level. It’s by Leonard Cohen.
You can see a video of Careless Love at her site.
Oh, and I grabbed some pictures last year when she appeared at Pantages.
