GO & SEE EMMY THE GREAT

January 16, 2007

Come on you silly people! If I can break my self-imposed blog silence for this gig, then you can get off your oversized-London bottoms and walk, roll or crawl (if you must) to the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen this Thursday night to see the fantastical Emmy The Great play songs and (probably) talk in between them.

It's £6.50ish to get in and there will be support on the night from Noah and The Whale, who have three songs to download on their myspace, which you probably should do. There will be some other bands playing and Fisherprice Soundsystem (featuring star of thelondonpaper Fred Les lolz) and Full Time Hobby will be DJing.

Here are the full details:

"The acoustic, honey-voiced angel of British anti-folk." NME

Emmy the Great, who was tipped as the singer songwriter for 2007 by
Vogue, plays a special headline show this Thursday at Hoxton Bar and
Kitchen.

Emmy is the Hong Kong born folksy singer-songwriter who writes
heart-manipulating folk songs with a visual humour that makes you
smile whilst slowly dilating your tear ducts. In her short career she
has and supported on various occasions the likes of Martha Wainwright,
Mystery Jets, Tilly & the Wall, Jamie T, Kimya Dawson, KT Tunstall and
most recently Fyfe Dangerfield. The Guillemots front-man is a big fan
and has offered to could arrange orchestration on her forthcoming
second single. Her debut single was released last summer and coincided
with Emmy being the must-see highlight at Truck and End of the Road
festivals.

Thursdays show is a warm-up for UK tour dates supporting Scott
Matthews, ahead of a trip to the States to guest on the debut album by
Lightspeed Champion (Dev Test-Icicles)
