Kate Nash

Kate Nash, who I hardly recognize in these pictures, played a show at Bowery Ballroom last night (4/29). It was her first of two NYC shows on her current tour in support of a new album. The next one is Saturday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg (it’s sold out). Having recently injured her leg or ankle, Kate was walking on crutches, couldn’t stand much and had to rest her knee on a stool for balance.

“Playing with a punk band, The Receeders, in her off time has served Nash well, imbuing her latest material with a compelling, believable and, dare I say, informed anger and sass, as evidenced by hyper takes on “Take Me to a Higher Plane,” and “I’ve Got a Secret,” and the fearless, stream-of-consciousness mania that encompasses the best parts of “Don’t You Want to Share the Guilt?” and “Mansion Song.” These are no PMS tantrums; no, these are the panicked thoughts of a successful young girl finding her inner riot grrl and licking her red-stained lips in bemused satisfaction. While Q Magazine warned readers to “look away now,” I wholeheartedly disagree – with lines like “Take a piece of raw vegetable and hold it to your breast and say you stood for nothing/You were just a hole that lacked passion. /Another undignified product of society/That girl should have been a mansion,” it’s time to start paying attention. Nash isn’t talking about knitting or shoe-shopping or a game of croquet before supper. No flower-picking, strolling, picnicking parklife here, darling.” [Sentimentalist Magazine]

I believe the new UK folk scene has a serious admiration for the NYC alt-folk scene of the early 2000’s. Staying consistent with that, Trachtenburg Family Slideshow spin-off group Supercute! opened the show, and were, to quote Eric, “cute”.
