Duffy @ Lollapalooza

"The one major Lolla letdown was Duffy, the 24-year-old Welsh singer who's on the cover of the new Spin. She's being hyped as the next Amy Winehouse, but Duffy's thin, shrill voice makes Ms. Winehouse sound like Aretha Franklin." [Dallas News]
Duffy is currently getting drizzled on at All Points West. More pics from her Lollapalooza show below...

Who concocted this thing? she looks like a truck stop hooker on the fourth of july

Posted by anonymous | August 8, 2008 4:49 PM

why is it so hard to take this with an ounce of seriousness?

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2008 4:51 PM

she is def way too contrived for my tastes, she also needs to let go of miss winehouse`s coat tails. tsk tsk

Posted by madina | August 8, 2008 4:53 PM

so so so don't care.

Holys hit she's a white girl!

This show was weak, I was trying to forgive her because at least she was cute, but now that's out the window (I was in the back). As someone else recently put it, this is the result of top-down marketing.

'Warwick Avenue' is a great song about London, though. She has a couple of good singles - there's a lot worse out there than Duffy, that's for sure.

You know... I wouldn't even hit it

i saw her at sxsw and her show still stands as the worst performance i've ever seen in my life. it was so bad that i ran to the back of stubbs and sat in a port-o-potty nude until it was over.

fuck you all. duffy is our generation's R.E.M.

Posted by andrew | August 8, 2008 5:30 PM

saw her at osheaga. not very good. it looked like she walked into guitar centre on a tuesday to pick out her backing band.

DUFF BEER FOR ME!
DUFF BEER FOR YOU!
I'LL HAVE A DUFF!
YOU HAVE ONE, TOO!

I'd hit it.

Posted by John Edwards | August 8, 2008 6:26 PM

her stylist should get 3-5 hard labor for this crime against fashion

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2008 6:37 PM

lol last guy.

If anyone reading this is going to all points west: If you are coming from NYC, the best method is to take the NJ path to Hoboken, and then take the NJ Light Rail from Hoboken to Liberty State Park.

Go here for more specific details: http://www.njtransit.com/sa/sa_servlet.srv?hdnPageAction=CustomerNoticeTo&NoticeId=2101


Maybe BV can post this link in their next post??

ps- If anyone has an extra ticket for tomorrow, please sell it to me. thanks.

if she really has a thin or shrill voice the shure beta 57 is a bad mic choice. get something like a kms 105 or a senheiser 935 at least

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2008 6:47 PM

Nah Duffy's great you're all wankers

Posted by jd | August 8, 2008 7:20 PM

I'd drizzle all over her. BOOYA!!

Posted by Boner Stabone | August 8, 2008 7:47 PM

what a porker.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2008 7:59 PM

"what a porker."

haha I was just gonna write, compared to Amy, hot damn, she's a fatty.

also, I think it's an insult to music to compare her to Amy Winehouse. as much as I don't like her life decisions, Ms Winehouse's voice is amazing.

Posted by Hanan | August 8, 2008 8:33 PM

Welsh Tart.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2008 8:55 PM

i'd fuck her in the ass and cum on her back. oh, yes indeed.

Posted by assbust | August 8, 2008 9:41 PM

this outfit looks like one of the Project Runway olympics outfits. God were those revolting. I have no idea who Duffy is but Patrick Duffy is awesome.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2008 9:44 PM

she looks so awkward... and boxy.

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2008 11:03 PM

Well gosh "assbust", I guess I would too! BOOYA!

Posted by Boner Stabone | August 8, 2008 11:16 PM

wow look, its 17 of the same damn picture. do you pay bao by the shot or something?

Posted by Anonymous | August 8, 2008 11:32 PM

Duffy's cool, it's you guys that suck.

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2008 12:10 AM

her outfit is cute. I guess the real problem is its not trashy enough for you people.

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2008 1:06 AM

The outfit isn't flattering at all. It has nothing to do with cute or trashy - she's already wearing mom clothes with that ensemble!

And she looks like she'd sound like a slapped ass looks.

Wrinkle I have two tickets for tomorrow for sale. Email me fakeaccountwoot@hotmail.com (not a fake account at all btw).

Brooklyn Vegan's commenters have gotten quite sexist and extreme when it comes to the crude remarks they make towards women in music. I really do think it's time people start having to sign in and at least drop an email address like Stereogum. That would keep all the childish little boys on this site from spouting off things they'd never say in public.

Posted by cv | August 9, 2008 6:51 AM

I love the little sassy jumpsuits she always wears. in a non-creepy female bv commenter way.

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2008 8:26 AM

tbh for stereogum/videogum i always put my email address as Me@me.com and it goes through fine. no accountability whatsoever.

Duffy is a babe (she looked great at APW yesterday...WAY better than the pics above) but that shrill, shreiking voice of hers just doesn't work. She drove me away from the stage in a mere matter of minutes despite the eye candy.

Posted by blackhat | August 9, 2008 8:34 AM

Duffy is JUST BAD all around
voice look band
why are we talking about her?
it's like a bad high school musical spoof.

Posted by gregory | August 9, 2008 9:41 AM

anyone that defends duffy obvs didnt see her set yesterday. it was horrible.

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2008 10:43 AM

Her set was great, as for the haters ... well the hearing aid is supposed to go in your EAR hole dummies

Posted by bennyparet | August 9, 2008 10:48 AM

Duffy was great, but then she always is

Posted by anita o'day | August 9, 2008 10:51 AM

i thought it was duff mckagan

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2008 12:12 PM

drew thurlow is hot

Posted by Anonymous | August 9, 2008 2:58 PM

She's basically like Amy Winehouse- except WITHOUT that other stuff which makes Amy Winehouse cool.
I am not wasting my money on this soon-to-be-forgotten pop tart

Posted by Scottydukes | August 9, 2008 10:10 PM

Amy's drugs and fucked-up life make her cool??? ..... I guess you're the type of ghoul who likes to look at road accidents or execution videos.

Posted by emile | August 10, 2008 6:46 AM

duffy on the other hand belongs on Lawrence Welk

Posted by gregory | August 10, 2008 7:55 AM

Pretty unflattering dress.

Posted by Matt | August 10, 2008 11:05 AM

jees guys... she was just trying to show some pride to the you ess of A

Posted by Monica | August 10, 2008 11:22 PM

You can't hear her, but that is beside the point I guess. She is extraordinary in her writing skills talent,but a few weak pictures should undermine that adequately no?

Posted by Anonymous | August 10, 2008 11:23 PM

Duffy's single reminds me of the Alvin and the Chipmunks Christmas album I loved as a small child.

I guess that means I like it?

Posted by Greg | August 11, 2008 3:47 AM

A few of you guys are complete sickos and most of you are clearly deranged. If you yanks bothered to look outside of your "big country" you'd realise that Duffy is the biggest selling artist of the year so far. She has been at the top of the charts in loads of different countries and that isn't because she may or may not have a f*ckable ass, that is because she can sing. Her album is superb and she comes across as a lovely person during interviews. Just grow up you complete idiots!

Posted by Anonymous | August 11, 2008 11:01 AM

I agree that she's lovely to look at, and I'm sure she's a perfectly pleasent person. I just can't stand her music. (She's almost as bad/obnoxious as Amy Winehouse).

Posted by Greg | August 11, 2008 3:02 PM

Fuck you all you redneck no taste wasters! Duffy is the biggest star this century obviously beyond the comprehension of you soar mouthed sour mashed nation!!
