Jemina Pearl @ Williamsburg Waterfront in July (more by Bao Nguyen)
Ex-Be Your Own Pet singer Jemina Pearl is already a week into her January/February tour across North America. The trip finishes with a show ("with special guests") at Brooklyn's Union Pool on Saturday, February 13th.
While we're on the topic of special guests and Union Pool, The Ghost Of A Saber Toothed Tiger, the psych-pop band fronted by Sean Lennon, play the venue "with guests" on February 19th. Last time they performed, in November, the band consisted of keyboardist Yuka Honda, drummer Yuko Araki and singer/bassist Charlotte Kemp Muhl. Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band, a group that Lennon & Honda both perform with, bring a ton of guests to their show at BAM on February 16th.
The former BYOP-bandmates of Jemina & co-songwriter John Eatherly, Jake and Jamin Orral of JEFF the Brotherhood are touring (with a New York City show) too.
So far it's been quiet on the newsfront for Jemina in 2010, minus a blog post about her injured toe (which hopefully doesn't affect her on tour). Gross toe pic and all tour dates are below...
