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.

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.
