Phlegmy David Byrne

An autoharp-plucking, ukulele-cradling lounge singer with an uncanny knack for sounding like a phlegmy David Byrne, Cory McAbee is the frontman for, and the ingenious engine behind, the art-rock threesome the Billy Nayer Show. In the trio’s decade-plus history, McAbee has not only eulogized bunny rabbits, John the Baptist, and glass vaginas with equal reverence, he’s also written, directed, scored, and starred in his own Sundance-approved "space Western musical," The American Astronaut. Simultaneously absurd and romantic enough to turn his apartment inventory into a love song, McAbee brings the Billy Nayer boys to Great Scott this evening for a little Sunday-night storytelling.
