Kristin Hersh shows in London this week!

Greetings all!

This Wednesday and Thursday we’ve got two very special nights planned at St John on Bethnal Green with the incomparable Kristin Hersh. Kristin has such a singular, powerful voice and songwriting vision, shining like a jewel through all her work. She will be treating us to two whole evenings in her company, sharing tales, songs and reading from her books throughout each night from 8.15pm. Full details on both of these rare and unique concerts follow, although please note we only have tickets left now for the Wednesday show. Full details and ticket links can be discovered below.

Also touring soon are Nottingham’s Rattle, our favourite double-drummers, taking out their hypnotic songs on the road with The Julie Ruin and Sleaford Mods. Here is the tour poster so you can acquaint yourselves with the dates (from Lille to Glasgow) and hopefully see them perform when they arrive and erupt into rhythm in your climes.

Today we’re also announcing two new shows for 2017! The first takes place on February 4th for Australian singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Carla dal Forno. Her new album on Blackest Ever Black is a triumph of plain-speaking pop and astral tones, longing for adventure and an unquiet life. Carla will be playing at The Islington for us, supported by Gross Net, tickets now onsale!

The second event we announced today celebrates the 20th anniversary of Milky Wimpshake’s debut album entitled ‘Bus Route To Your Heart’. Milky Wimpshake hatched out of the Slampt Underground arts umbrella in Newcastle Upon Tyne in the early 1990’s and have been serving up love songs for punks ever since. March 4th is the date for your diaries, get that highlighter pen out, how time flies (in your face)!

One last thing before we go, this week we confirmed that Upset The Rhythm will be releasing a new version of Terry's 7" from earlier this year, the excellent '8 Girls' EP! Now that the Aarght version is long sold out, the band have asked us to press this one up on transparent vinyl and house it in a reverse board card sleeve with new artwork featuring a giant man-made lake and Terry post-swim! Pre-order link is up and active here:

KRISTIN HERSH returns again to the UK for a rare solo tour in support of her critically-acclaimed new double CD and book, 'Wyatt At The Coyote Palace' (Omnibus Press) due out October 4th. From life as the reluctant front person for 4AD's Throwing Muses through the 80's and 90's, to the solo career that began with 1994's 'Hips and Makers', to her power trio 50FootWave and her new career as an author of memoirs 'Paradoxical Undressing' and 'Don't Suck, Don't Die', Kristin never stops creating. 'Wyatt' is the third release in the groundbreaking book/CD format that Kristin began with her most recent solo album 'Crooked' and the Throwing Muses' 2013 release 'Purgatory/Paradise'. "An Evening with Kristin Hersh" includes readings and songs from her works spanning her entire career.

Thank you so much for your time, see you soon!
