Beth Ditto @ Coachella 2010 (more by Rachel Carr)
Beth Ditto

It feels like we haven't heard about the Gossip in a little while. Their tour page shows they'll be playing some shows in Australia before the end of the year, but NYC will have the opportunity to experience the one and only Beth Ditto much sooner. Like James Murphy and and Bethany Cosentino, Beth is appearing in NYC this Thursday (9/8) in honor of Fashion's Night Out. Beth's TWO SONG SET will happen at Mac Cosmetics, and online. According to their Facebook...

"Get ready for the wildest night of the year... this Thursday is Fashion's Night Out! Gossip glamour girl Beth Ditto will be performing an exclusive two-song set at M·A·C Soho to celebrate Fashion's Night Out. Not in NYC? No problem! You can watch the event live on our Facebook page, beginning Thursday 9/8 at 8pm. See you there!
Beth's two songs happen at 8pm at 8 PM at M·A·C Cosmetics SoHo, 109 Spring St. @ Mercer Street. Hardly worth going over for, but if it's not too hard to get into (wishful thinking), you could easily hop around to/from James and Best Coast which are both on Mercer too.

These fashion night out bookers are so lazy and out of touch. Wow look at us we have James Murphy djing, and we have Beth Ditto playing 2 songs...what a non event these are.

Yes, she's overweight. Moving on...

12:56 = overweight

Goddammit. I was ready to be predictably disgusted at the comments here, then I found that beef stew comment pretty funny...

Former most dangerous place on Earth: anywhere between Chuck Schumer and a camera
New most dangerous place on Earth: in between Beth Ditto or James Murphy and the remnants of a box of donuts

I love that a down to earth, cool artist who has flipped the script and made a shit load of money is canceled out by her weight. And this is only ever talked about by guys who can't even get a call girl on CL to fuck them.

cheeseburger in paradise?

I remember when Beth Ditto lost a bunch of weight right before Standing In the Way of Control came out. She actually looked kinda hot. Weird.

Posted by Anonymous | September 6, 2011 1:43 PM

all she needs is a few more tattoos and a black t-shirt and she could sing for a metal band

Posted by Anonymous | September 6, 2011 1:46 PM

Totally, 1:46! Only then we'd be talking about a different kind of sausage

I might like you better if we slept together

LOL @ 2:12. I agree, it's so absurd that anyone could be excited about this.

If the girl got chops who cares if she's 400 lb and has black electrical tape over her eyes.

But honey baby, small tip no charge - the short hair ain't helping. Let it grow, like stripes.

2:43 is a DL chubby chaser. There is no haircut that could help that thing.

let's go whaling!

Posted by Anonymous | September 6, 2011 3:42 PM

the music's not bad, but there's a difference between overweight and morbidly obese. its not going to be cool anymore when she dies of congestive heart failure in her thirties.

NOT!

Fatwave: indie acts whose fanbases consist largely of hipsters laughing at a semi-naked fatty; examples include Fucked Up, Les Savy Fav, The Gossip

Adele is mom rock and therefore does not count as fatwave.

Beth Ditto is eating doughnuts at my house.

Posted by Anonymous | September 6, 2011 5:22 PM
