In the late 80s Suzanne Vega's second album "Solitude Standing" was a global hit, establishing her as one of the few rising stars of "new folk."

To gain entry into this exclusive performance at Rough Trade NYC purchase the new album from the Rough Trade store starting 11 a.m. on Monday, November 17. 64 North 9th St., Williamsburg. 6:30 p.m.
