UK electronic pop singer FKA twigs is less than a week away from releasing her debut LP (out 8/12 via Young Turks), and last night (8/6) she kicked off a short North American tour surrounding its release at NYC's Webster Hall. Even without her album officially out, the large venue was sold out, very packed, and the crowd was loving it (lots of girls even came to the show dressed like her). Like when she made her NYC debut this past April in two much smaller rooms, her dance moves were a highlight and she went all out this time. She even vogued. Pictures of the whole thing, including opener P. Morris, are in this post.

Earlier that day, twigs performed live on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show, playing three songs from the new album, "Two Weeks," "Give Up" and "Pendulum." Listen to that show, with more pictures and a video from Webster, below...

This looks like some Nana age tunes. I would dig it.

I'm not sure why "everyone" liked it. The sound was terrible and you couldn't hear her vocals at all. There are well produced little voices out there...this was a fail.

Did Gabe Spierer enjoy himself?

He's listed as a producer on the album so I'd say he's pretty ok with it.

She had such a commanding, other-worldy presence. The mix was kind of bad, but her performance was excellent. Kind of surprised that the guys backing her up looked liked they just walked in off the street, while Twigs looked like she came out of some vampire cabaret.
