Kate Nash @ Bowery Ballroom in 2008 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Kate Nash

Nash seems nervous, as you might if you were roadtesting an edgier new direction in front of a crowd close enough to smell your fear. But her breathlessness adds a certain resonance to songs about inadequacy and self-loathing. Some of her new material - particularly the sparkly "Do Wah Doo" - sound as if she's been inspired by Motown girl groups, others are more baffling. "I Love You More" finds her shrieking over walls of feedback. "I Know a Secret" is an unlikely but successful psychedelic odyssey about homophobia. "I Hate Seagulls" finds an unfortunate illustration when a young girl takes the "I hate being sick" line literally and vomits in front of the stage, which one hopes is not an allergic reaction to some of Nash's voyages away from her trademark narratives into proper, if slightly karaokeish, singing. [Guardian UK]
The above review is from a March 7th show Kate Nash did in Leeds. Her new record, My Best Friend Is You, comes out April 20th, and she'll be coming to North America this spring for a tour opened by NYC's own Supercute! (an all-girl ukulele, piano trio & guitar that features Rachel Trachtenburg). The trip includes Bowery Ballroom on April 29th and Music Hall of Williamsburg on May 1st (Tickets go on sale at noon). She'll also supposedly be on some dates of the Lilith Fair this summer

@12:49 : Killarney? What the hell? Cockney?

Methinks you're regurgitating NME reviews. Shame Shame.

I really enjoyed her first CD, but her concert at Webster Hall was truly abysmal - the 2nd worst concert I've ever seen (after a botched Badly Drawn Boy show about 8 years ago). Hopefully she's improved her live performance style, but I'm not willing to spend money to find out.

Yeah, 12:49 obviously copied that stupid review from somewhere else. Still want to know what a "killarney style accent" is.

It doesn't get much more blah than this... just because a cute girl/guy gets on stage, picks up a guitar, and acts quirky, it doesn't make him/her worth reporting about.

Ha! I think I was at that show. Roseland, right? It WAS pretty bad! And thank you for mentioning that in regards to the Kate Nash shows. I was on the fence about them. Guess I won't be attending now.
