Anna Calvi @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Anna Calvi

Anna Calvi, visiting Brooklyn from the UK, headlined the BrooklynVegan Holiday Party at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 12/13. According 2 G was there and he (G) listed his ten reasons why you should always see Anna live, which you can read at his site. Anna played every song on her debut album which came out earlier this year and covered Edith Piaf and TV on the Radio. She definitely rocked the house (and played one of Bill Pearis's favorite shows of the year). One person is now wondering who is better at shredding, Anna or Annie Clark?

Eleanor Friedberger (who plays the venue again soon) and New Moods (who told us her favorite things from 2011) both opened the Tuesday night show and tore it up as well.

Thanks to all who came - $1.00 of your ticket was donated to Toys for Tots, and we raised even more from the raffle we were running in the lobby (thanks to Domino Records, Merge Records, Frenchkiss Rercords, Partisan Records, Beggars/Matador, Bowery Presents, Rocks Off, Brooklyn Bowl, Live Nation, Vice, and more).

Can we all chip in and get Eleanor a new haircut for the holidays?

The more BV tries to be a producer/promoter, the more this site is unreliable. I liked BV better when it was just reviews and announcements. Now it's non-stop promo drivel for Anna Calvi and Braun Cruze shaving razors.

@3:45 I don't think that the band members are on this hater hangout trying to sway the "buzz" about a 8 dollar concert last month. Prolly just fans like myself.

Damn. That is awesome that one of the girls from Robert Palmer's video "Simply Irresistible" went on to launch a music career 30 yrs later. "Simply Irresistible! She's so fine there's no tellin where the money went!"
