Kimbra at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Over the summer, Kimbra announced a tour with Empress Of which hits NYC on November 6 at Bowery Ballroom. That show unsurprisingly sold out almost immediately, and the pair have now added a second NYC date happening a few days earlier at Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 3. Tickets for MHOW go on sale Friday (9/19) at noon. Updated dates are listed below.
Kimbra will also be in NYC before that tour kicks off for a "special collaboration set" with local jazz band Kneebody at Le Poisson Rouge on September 26. Tickets for that show are on sale now too.
Opening the LPR show is NYC's Tiny Hazard. They're planning to release their debut album next year, but ahead of that they have a one-off single, "Silhouette," which premieres in this post. It's a kind of eccentric art pop that fans of St. Vincent, My Brightest Diamond or early Regina Spektor may dig. You can hear it for yourself below.
