Crush

Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O is releasing her first solo album, Crush Songs, on September 9 via Julian Casablancas' Cult Records, and she's now announced some intimate shows to celebrate it. She'll begin with a three-night run at NYC's McKittrick Hotel (Sept. 9-11) at the Manderley Bar and a fourth NYC show on 9/12 at Le Poisson Rouge. That's followed by a three-night run in LA, a two-night run in London, and a Berlin show. Tickets for all dates go on sale via Karen's website on Friday (8/15). The US shows go on sale at noon PST/3 PM EDT. All dates are listed below.

Before the tour, Sofar Sounds will host advance listening parties for Crush Songs in 21 cities on August 27, including NYC. "The events will take place at secret locations in homes and apartments where hosts will play the deluxe edition of Crush Songs--featuring O's own words and artwork--for private audiences in each city."

Why is O's right thigh barely bigger than her right arm?

Is O a gimp and all the costumery exposed it?

'Cute' a 45-year-old lady can still 'crush'.

NOOOOOOOO!!!! This article said tickets go on sale at 3PM for NYC and they were wrong! Now I missed the chance to buy tickets, UUUGGGHHH beyond sad and annoyed at Brooklyn Vegan!!!

DID ANYONE GET TICKETS??? I THINK NOOOOO

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2014 3:15 PM

Tickets were unavailable for all NYC dates right before circa 2:55pm EST. Either they sold out in presale or BV fucked up the times.

Thank god I got my ticket yesterday and avoided all this bullshit.

Posted by Anonymous | August 15, 2014 3:30 PM

Wait, how were you able to get tickets yesterday??

Posted by Jen W | August 15, 2014 3:31 PM

Jen, there was a presale. They announced it on her facebook page.

I have 2 extra tickets for Karen O at the McKittrick Hotel Wednesday 9/10/14.

If interested, I will transfer my reservation to your name because there are no physical tickets (I have confirmed with ovation tix that this is possible). You must confirm payment via Paypal or Venmo first and I will transfer the tickets to you directly after. No B.S.

Posted by PCP | September 9, 2014 3:37 PM

Looks like the Hotel got wind of all of the people changing the name of reservations and put a stop to it. Just spoke to Ovationtix and they won't let me change the name over. So I'm eating my 2 tickets for tonight. can't go. beware.
