Margo May, a Kansas City songwriter with the voice of an angel, sat perched on a chair in front of the vivid curtain that serves as the backdrop for live sets at the popular record store. She put out a split album last summer that was well-received in the area, and on Friday she played old and new favorites (as well as a cover).
