Laura Marling @ Town Hall, NYC - May 10, 2008 (MusicSnobbery)
The 18-year-old Brit Laura Marling, who just finished a European tour with Adam Green, proved a stunning opening act. Her solo acoustic set was made up of six ghostly, melancholic songs brimming with themes of love and loss that belie her youth and fragile appearance. We'd first seen her sing with friends Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit at SXSW, and as expected, Marling's show tonight was worth arriving early for.Laura will be back in NYC in June. She has a show scheduled at Glasslands on June 16th and one two days later at Mercury Lounge. Tickets for the Merc show are on sale (@ noon).
