We knew Frank Underwood could cheat, connive, even murder. But sing?

Apparently so. Actor Kevin Spacey, whose malevolent "House of Cards" character has schemed his way to the U.S. presidency, will be showcasing (we hope) an entirely different side of his talents when he takes to the concert stage at D.C.'s Shakespeare Theatre on Sept. 29.

The Oscar-winning actor, whose "House of Cards" is currently filming its third season here in Baltimore, told the Associated Press his show will feature some Billy Joel, some Simon & Garfunkel and some Frank Sinatra, along with some storytelling and "a surprise guest or two." He'll be backed by a 40-piece orchestra.

While Underwood may not be renowned for his singing, Spacey has had some experience. He starred in the 2004 biopic of singer Bobby Darin, "Beyond the Sea," and sang Darin's songs.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Kevin Spacey Foundation, which provides scholarships and grants for emerging artists. Tickets, priced at $104, are available through the foundation's website, kevinspaceyfoundation.com.
