Friday night, see singer-songwriter Shawn Mullins live at Spaceland Ballroom, with Heather Maloney. Mullins is best known for his Grammy-nominated 1998 single "Lullaby," which was virtually everywhere back in the day. In 2009, the song was used by Michael Scott on the American version of "The Office" to comfort himself after learning that Dunder Mifflin may go under.
