Little Scream @ the Rock Shop
Little Scream's performance on Friday was a show and not-telling of everything one might want to believe about art--that somehow one individual's pain or interiority can be translated into something relatable, even into existential comfort. It might have been the end of the tour in one sense, but in another there's relish in the pause. Sprengelmeyer said she's immediately ready to get working on another album. Now will be the anticipation of flipping over the golden record to hear what's on the other side. [L Mag]Little Scream concluded her tour in NYC at The Rock Shop last week (12/2) with The Hoof and the Heel and Doug Keith, after also playing Pianos on 11/29. More pictures from that show are below.
Little Scream, whose debut album ended up on NPR's year end list, also recently performed a cover of The Velvet Underground's "Jesus" for The A.V. Club's Holiday Undercover series. You can watch a video of that below. She'll tour the US and Canada again this March, though no east coast dates have been announced.
