Anna Calvi @ Bowery Ballroom
Anna Calvi

"...when Anna Calvi coaxed slinky licks, sweeping chords, and gasping runs out of her Telecaster, I couldn't help but smile. She can really play -- she leaves no room for questions of authenticity. she's there, and she's doing it, bringing a sensuality and nuance to her guitar playing that stands her apart from a lot of guitarists, both male and female." [Broken & the Blessed]
As promised in the post that mentioned David Byrne was in the audience, here are pictures from Anna Calvi's Wednesday night show at Bowery Ballroom with Cuckoo Chaos and She Keeps Bees. More of them below.

Anna and Cuckoo are now still on tour, and Anna's NYC return has already been announced. Tickets are on sale for a July 27th show at Le Poisson Rouge. That's three days before Anna plays Osheaga in Montreal.

Highlights of Anna's Bowery set included her covers of both Elvis's "Surrender", and Edith Piaf's "Jezebel". Videos of both (one from the Bowery show, one from a previous show), with more pictures and tour dates, below...

Cool. Maybe I'll catch her at LPR this time. I missed this past show because I was at the Converge one.

yowza yowza, this dame sure can play, and how. it's a cute trick, but i could play well too if i wasn't out there in the real world earning an honest living, while all she had to do was lie on her back and squeeze out a few kids
