Gossip @ Knitting Factory, NYC - April 14, 2007 (CRED)
Gossip @ KF

I'm so bad - I still haven't told the story (or finished posting the pictures) of Patrick Wolf beating up his wasted drummer on stage at Misshapes two Saturdays ago (well actually, that basically IS the story). I know, I know - you hate Misshapes, but you can't argue that they're not doing OK in the booking department. Two weeks ago was Patrick, this Saturday (April 21) they have Ghostland Observatory, and last weekend they got Beth Ditto from (Columbia Records recording artist) The Gossip (who they - the Mishapes DJ's - are soon also touring with).

Ghostland Obervatory are also playing a sold out show at Bowery Ballroom in NYC tonight. (April 18). More dates at the end of this post.

Patrick Wolf just announced that he'll be playing opener on some of Amy Winehouse's upcoming North American tour dates. That's an amazing combo - hopefully the shows actually happen. The NYC show is May 9th at Highline Ballroom, but Patrick will also be here over a week earlier to perform for free at Virgin Records in Union Square. That show is April 30th. All tour dates below....

But first back to Beth....The Gossip played Knitting Factory in NYC on Saturday night (April 14), and it appears Beth stayed fully clothed at that show (see above). I can't say the same for her appearance at Misshapes later that night though. There, she DID take off her clothes (again). NSFW (don't blame me) photos (and lots more) below....

Coincidentally, the often-undressed Kevin Barnes of Of Montreal was playing and sorta-getting undressed too the very same night - across town in Brooklyn.....

One week earlier, Beth was hangin' with Kate Moss in LA.

Believe it or not, this post is still way more safer than work than the one I could have made with the photos of "No Bra" who opened for Patrick Wolf the week before at Misshapes (NSFW EXAMPLE ONE, NSFW EXAMPLE TWO). He or she?

Here's one more good one of Patrick from Misshapes....

And here's one I never posted of Amy Winehouse from the Fader Fort at SXSW....

Ghostland is rad, and those shots of Ditto half naked are bananas.

Did she grow up with posters of Courtney Love all over her room?

Patrick wolf = hot

No bra = (borat voice) Not so much....

Posted by andrew | April 18, 2007 10:10 PM

did this sort of behavior suddenly become beyond reproach just because beth is fat?

Posted by chris | April 18, 2007 10:37 PM

YES, if you criticize Beth in ANY way you'll have countless posts calling you a misogynist and saying you're responsible for girls becoming anorexic. You'll also have a bunch of posts claiming it's healthy it is to be fat. You'll have some more posts about how it's not fat people's fault that they're fat.

What's the deal with Patrick's signing at Virgin? Doesn't the album come out domestically the following day, May 1? Is this going to be a midnight thing?

Wow! Patrick Wolf and Kevin Barnes are just SOOOOO quirky! Duuuuude, they *tots* rock out, maaaaaan. The faux-hipster, "I'm a wild indie rocker" schtick is beyond grating. It's just cliche at this point.

Posted by Brian | April 19, 2007 12:53 PM

its basically a cliche to posts comments regarding anything hipster, way to go!

I can never understand why all these fat chicks are always so uppity. For fuck's sake, they should be happy that a cucumber doesn't run away from them.

Posted by Crosseyed Sniper | April 19, 2007 7:17 PM

you know Rosie wants that.. Did Uncle Fester from Adams Family have a secret love child, who mated with a manatee and had a secret love child?

Posted by fun-fun | April 19, 2007 7:25 PM

the woman is just gross. period. she looks like she's 30-something; shouldn't she be worried about settling down?

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2007 8:38 PM

no. just....no.

Posted by cathay | April 19, 2007 8:39 PM

She's a 35 year old lesbian with a tranny partner so i don't think she's worrying about "settling down."

Beth Ditto posed nude for On Our Backs, a women-run lesbian erotica magazine. "It was a big moment in my life," she told Curve magazine. "It was kind of a radical thing to do. I got my period just 10 minutes before we got there, and I was totally bleeding. I was doing it with my tranny boyfriend, who I’m in love with, and I was totally bleeding — how radical is that? — and I’m a fat person, and I’m a femme. It felt really good." [Wikipedia]

Oops, I meant 25 year old....

Ditto was nominated for Sexiest Woman Of The Year in the NME Awards 2007 but Kate Moss won the award.

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2007 8:59 PM

but i just dont see why she's even remotely famous, much less being posted here. is it because she's so outrageous that she has to have people blogging about her? or is it because of her "accomplishments?"

Posted by Anonymous | April 19, 2007 9:47 PM

its because shes a good singer, dickslap.

Posted by thiscold | April 20, 2007 12:30 AM

that's REALLY all you had to say, bv? whether she was dressed or not during her show on saturday?

shouldn't you be commenting on whether the SHOW was any good?

you fucking suck. stop feeding the trolls and get back to talking about MUSIC.

Posted by Anonymous | April 20, 2007 2:25 PM

I'm sure the show was amazing, as I've always said about any Gossip show. Unfortunately I wasn't there.

Posted by brooklynvegan | April 20, 2007 2:29 PM

all of you are boring
That giant beast pictured above is vile and there no other way to put it.
Good for her, she's fat and can sing. So can a lot of other fat girls but they're not slinging their pork all over the place.
Give it up.

Posted by fartlips | April 21, 2007 8:29 PM

Yes, she's fat and "slinging her meat" (as you put it), but that is one of her selling points. It might offend you, but as you can see from some of the other comments, her fans think she's fabulous.

Posted by Anonymous | April 21, 2007 10:05 PM

Beth would get more respect from me if she didn't wear "fatty panties". Seriously, what's up with those kinds of panties if someone is comfortable with their size? They are too tight on her anyway, making her bulge out in uncomfortable looking ways. She should go for something nicer, and less granny looking. Show all that fat and to hell with anyone who faints from it.

Posted by Anonymous | April 22, 2007 3:05 AM

Beth Ditto and Kevin Barnes really, really scare me...

god that could be the most disgusting thing i've ever seen

Posted by Brett | May 12, 2007 9:50 PM

fat chicks are uppity from the years of haters talking smack to them.

however... she's nasty-fat. there's still a difference between being healthy and plump and being obese. seriously when people said it's good to have curves they do not mean this extreme level of being overweight, that statement is to encourage healthy amounts of bodyfat as opposed to being skeletal, which this woman has long gone beyond. and i don't want to hear about 'unhealthy brown fat around the organs', because overweight people are five times more likely to have the fat around their organs as well, active OR sedentary.

it's fine with me if she's happy this way, but this shouldn't be seen as an ideal to strive for anymore than the opposite extreme.

*****************BETH DITTO**********************

I think Beth Ditto is ace! The world goes through fads where the dirty, grungy and unperfect are en vogue and she encapsulates it all. 90's herion-sheek, 07 Fat-Rock. Love it! It's a great thing she's comfortable with her body, may not be everyone's ideal eye candy but thats not her intention!

Posted by Nadia | June 2, 2007 9:12 PM

She's just another example of a performer acting outrageous to get attention and the media (in this case NME (and perhaps even BV!) using her pictures in an attempt to gain readership...nothing new in that respect.

Posted by Anonymous | June 2, 2007 9:42 PM

I'd give her one!

Posted by PigSticker | June 10, 2007 6:23 PM

Beth Ditto is fucking beautiful.
Although the foot in the mouth is just kind of weird.

In other words i wanna slap the fat and ride the waves.

lol love this collection of comments... beth ditto and the kind of art she embodies is just as valid as any other kind of art. and if you respond that intensely to it, she definitely did something right. ;)
