When Katy Pfaffl became Mighty Kate, it was presumably to skirt the trouble of repeating her consonant-heavy name to everyone she met. But heroic connotations of her pseudonym are no accident -- there is something genuinely superhuman in her constant swapping between violin, piano and guitar, not to mention the towers of sound she builds in her songs. This Broadway-ready tune comes from her self-titled debut album, to be released at tonight's show.
