Soundcheck Live: The Mountain Goats and Suzanne Vega

In-person event

The Mountain Goats


Suzanne Vega (Mary Rozzi)

Early in her career, Suzanne Vega turned slices of life into hits like “Luka” and “Tom’s Diner.” More recently, her music has told stories from her own life – and from other New Yorkers. Now, Vega has written about a literary hero in an original play called “Carson McCullers Talks About Love.” She joins us to plays songs from the piece talk about the iconic Southern author who wrote the novel “The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter.”


Billy Bragg

For three decades, the English singer-songwriter Billy Bragg has channeled socially conscious punk into songs that sound more like dust bowl ballads and romantic serenades. But in concert, his thought-provoking stage banter gives his music a run for its money. Join our live studio audience for an earful when he performs in The Greene Space.
