Bachelorette @ Cameo
Bachelorette

Annabel Alpers, known by her stage name Bachelorette played Cameo on March 4th with support from Baby Alpaca and Bermuda Bonnie. She has also been opening for the Magnetic Fields. Someone who saw the Albany show wrote:

"Bachelorette - the stage name of New Zealand singer-songwriter Annabel Alpers - opened the show with a hypnotic solo performance that was dripping with new wave-vintage electro-pop, from the throbbing, big-buzz backbeat of "Blanket" to the gauzy, reverb-drenched swirl of "Love Is a Drug." She accompanied herself on a pair of laptops, the occasional shake of a maraca or the tap of a tambourine and dreamy, drifting vocals as she wove a sparkling sonic tapestry."
Bachelorette opens for the Mag Fields in Philadelphia tonight and then will take a couple weeks away from the road before jetting to the West Coast to support Stephin Merritt for another string of dates that head Eastward by month's end. Tour dates are listed below.

The new record by The Magnetic Fields, Love at the Bottom of the Sea, is out NOW via Merge and the band will hit Beacon Theater for two nights, April 3rd and 4th with Devotchka, as well as SXSW for a few shows. Tickets for 4/3 and for 4/4 are still available.

All tour dates and pictures from Cameo are below...

why duct tape out the apple logo when depending on the machine for the performance?

sweet. another "artist" who just stands in front of a laptop and sings karaoke. can't wait to pay money to see this shit!

I see that she doesn't like the apple logo on the back of her computer for whatever reason haha.

Posted by degrees | March 7, 2012 1:11 PM

she uses projections so i'm guessing the white glowing interferes with 'em.

I agree with everyone that taping off the logo is stupid. We all know what it is anyways but I guess she either broke it or is trying to be "punk"

there's nothing more "punk" than embracing pet insurance.

This is EXACTLY WHAT WE NEEDED another person playing 'music' on their computer!

1:08 - that's hilarious, THAT IS THE FIRST THING MY EYES WENT TO ALSO! Like, oh we won't know it's a MBP just 'cause it's got the pasties over the glowing fruit.

I really wonder if she had ended up breaking the apple logo on the back of her computer.

I bet all you cool kids in "the scene" will now be taping your Apple logos on your laptops. How "rad."
