EMA

Noisy folk singer EMA (Erika M. Anderson) will play two shows in NYC tonight 7/20. She'll play an early show at Mercury Lounge with Helado Negro and a late show at Glasslands with Talk Normal and Ablehearts. Tickets for the early show and the late show are still available.

EMA contributed a killer take on Nirvana's "Endless, Nameless" to Newermind. The track sounds more like EMA than Nirvana and is possibly the best cover on the album.

EMA also played the Empty Bottle in Chicago the day before she played Pitchfork Music Festival. Check out pictures from Pitchfork here and a set of pics from the Empty Bottle show, along with updated tour dates below...

I come to this board just to exasperate uptight fools (male and female) who "really don't come to BV for the comments" although they read all the comments in all the threads

I don't shape my beard, but I do shape my pubes into interesting shapes. For example, one month my bush is a pineapple, then the next month it's a school bus (they grow fast, the little buggers)

"covering Nirvana" is newsworthy?

Nirvana was horrible, so is this most recent mistake of a band

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2011 5:41 PM

334, so you're over 16 and say "probs"?
