Nellie McKay sings prison blues at Catalina Bar & Grill

July 07, 2011

MUSIC

Taking on the role that won Susan Hayward an Oscar, Nellie McKay in her latest musical project gives voice to the lying, scheming Barbara Graham, the third woman to die in the gas chamber in California at San Quentin in 1955. "I Want to Live!" is a noir bad-girl tale, replete with prison lesbianism, so prepare to be scandalized. Catalina Bar & Grill, 6725 Sunset Blvd. 8 p.m. Sat. $20. (323) 466-2210.
