Donna Summer, who sang some of the most memorable anthems of the disco era from "Love to Love You Baby" to "Bad Girls," has died after a long battle with cancer. She had a top 40 hit every year from 1976 to 1984, including the song she once told NPR she'd perform till the very end, "Last Dance."
Regina Spektor has spent much of the past decade perfecting an oddly lovely mix of sweet melodies, piano-driven pop, flashes of experimentalism, and cheery but wistful ruminations on love and heartache. But Spektor writes and performs with the passion of punk, and her otherwise innocent story-songs take unconventional turns.
On May 31, we'll live webcast and broadcast a concert by Regina Spektor from New York's Le Poisson Rouge. You'll be able to watch the whole thing live on NPR Music and via our apps as it's happening, beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
But if you're in New York City on the night of the show and want to go, we've got free tickets for you. Tickets are very limited, so grab one for you and a guest while you can on a first-come, first-served basis.
