Suzanne Vega plays City Winery May 2
The 'Luka' and 'Tom's Diner' singer and songwriter revisits the hits
In 1987, New York City-based folk-pop songwriter Suzanne Vega scored a pair of hits with “Tom’s Diner” and “Luka.” The latter is a cooly melodic, lyrically gripping tale of child abuse sung in her seductively hushed voice. Both songs are good enough reason to reprise the platinum-selling Solitude Standing, on the album’s 30th anniversary. Add the techno-tinged 99.9 F, her certified gold release from 1992, now celebrating its 25th anniversary, along with various of other deep cuts from Vega’s catalog for a classy, retro evening of boomer-friendly music that’s perfectly suited to this intimate venue.
