Tonight! Jill Sobule and Erin McKeown at Off Broadway

Fans of witty, intelligent singer-songwriters are in luck: Tonight, Off Broadway is hosting Jill Sobule and Erin McKeown. The former's latest album is California Years, "an easygoing, acoustic-based album underwritten by donations from fans." The latter's new album, Hundreds of Lions, is yet another collection of her smart, folk-based tunes, which transcend the genre because of her smoky voice and clever, theatrical orchestration.

Here's a new McKeown MP3 and a video of Sobule performing "a happy song about global warming," which seems appropriate for the weather lately.
