London-born singer and Broadway veteran Nellie McKay is on the same list as McCartney, Lizzo, and Stevie Wonder, in that they’re all musicians who openly advocate for veganism and human rights in general. She’s even been given awards by PETA and the Humane Society for her advocacy.

The 40-year-old singer was majorly influenced by music of the 1960s—especially the late Doris Day—and she’ll blend songs from that era, as well as some of her original material into the setlist for what appears to be her Tampa Bay debut.

Tickets to see Nellie McKay play the Side Door Cabaret at Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg on Friday, Jan. 13 are still available for $30-$50.
