Tonight: Madeleine Peyroux at the Boulder Theater
There is no denying that Madeleine Peyroux (who plays the Boulder Theater tonight with Sunny War) bears an uncanny resemblance to Billie Holiday. But while the inspiration and gilded jazz vocal similarities are there, the pain is not -- Peyroux brings her own whimsical style to the genre with a sense of humor in her lyrics and delivery.
On tour now in support of her 2011 album, Standin' On The Rooftop, Peyroux has taken a new turn with her compositions, breaking from the blues a bit to focus on a more folk and roots-influenced sound. This show tonight is all ages, and tickets are $37-48.50. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the performances begins at 8 p.m.
