The Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans (CAC) continues its 2014 -15 Performing Arts Season with singer-bassist Meshell Ndegeocello, who returns to New Orleans with her band to perform her critically-acclaimed new album, Comet, Come to Me-an introspective, unwavering look into memory, lost love, and human fallacies.
