Earlier this year, Nicole Dollanganger signed to Grimes' label Eerie Organization to release Natural Born Losers, and she's been out on tour with her. Grimes and Nicole hit NYC's Terminal 5 on Monday and they're playing Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight, but last night (11/17) was an off night so Nicole played her own NYC show at Baby's All Right. Opening was Foxes In Fiction and Emily Reo, who played a set together at the BV/Collect CMJ showcase at that same venue last month, but last night they both played solo.
Nicole played with a two-piece backing band, which she told Nylon about:
I get sick before I go onstage, I usually get sick after, but my backing band are my two best friends, Matt and Kevin. My first show with them was a few weeks ago, and even though I felt absolutely petrified, being up there with two people I love so much made me feel so much better, like we're in this together.
Nicole's songs have a weird, unsettling-yet-fascinating mix of Xiu Xiu-levels of darkness/horror and softer, more delicate sounds. They covered Type O Negative's "Christian Woman," which they've been doing on other dates on the tour too. You can watch a video of the cover from the Terminal 5 show, below.
Nicole and Grimes are at MHOW tonight (11/18). It's sold out but Grimes is giving away a few tickets on her Facebook. More pictures from Baby's below...
