Back in March, rock & roll guitarist and singer Jan Tilley closed her Time Capsule 1970s/’80s Tribute show at the Cutting Room with a sizzling cover of Heart’s “Barracuda.” It was merely a taste of what’s to come, as Tilley, the cofounder of the Rude Girls and an early portrayer of Krzysztof in Hedwig & the Angry Inch, returns to the Cutting Room on June 14 with “Tell-Tale Heart,” an evening dedicated to the music of the Wilson sisters.
Katia Floreska, Ki Ki Hawkins, and Shannon Conley will alternate the Ann parts, with Jan performing as Nancy. The band consists of bassist Carl Limbacher, guitarist Stephen Flakus, pianist Paul Leschen, and drummer Joe DiBella. Be prepared to, well, sing your heart out with Tilley, a consummate rocker who puts on a helluva show, marching across the stage and into the audience, wearing her heart on her sleeve.
