Lawrence songwriter Charles S. McVey incorporates a heavy '80s new-wave influence mixed with the subtleties of solo piano. McVey has added himself to the ranks as an "out" musician, though his songs are not left ambiguous or vague in an attempt to appeal to a broader audience. Rather, his approach is non-confrontational and open, allowing his music to transcend gender and sexual identity. McVey is usually backed live by Erik Kessinger on drums and Max Paley on bass but he'll likely go solo for tonight's low-key double bill with Philadelphia folkies Chris Schultz and Steph Hayes.
