EMA at MFNW 2011 (more by Autumn Andel)

EMA will headline the High Road Touring CMJ showcase which is happening on October 20 at Bowery Ballroom. The showcase also includes Gross Magic, Marques Toliver (who opened for Liam Finn last night), Dry The River, Lydia, and Alabama Shakes. Tickets go on sale Wednesday (9/21) at noon.

In the spirit of the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind and EMA's cover of "Endless Nameless," she posted three Nirvana covers that her previous band, Gowns, played at a cover show in LA to her blog. You can check out their scratchy, rowdy takes on "Clean Up Before She Comes," "You Know You're Right," and "Aneurysm."

EMA also has a bunch of other dates on her international tour, which she kicked off earlier this month, including the previously announed CMJ show with CSS and MEN on October 22 at Webster Hall. Tickets for that show are still on sale.

The High Road Touring CMJ showcase will be Gross Magic's fourth (currently known) NYC show in October, after they make their US debut at Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 13 and 14 with Yuck and Porcelain Raft (tickets) and Cameo Gallery on October 15 with Mon Khmer and Lost Boy? (tickets).
