An Evening With Kristin Hersh

Music |
24th October 2023

Doors 7.30pm | Tickets £25.50 | Theatre

Over the last three decades, Kristin Hersh’s prolific career has seen her heralded queen of the alternative release, with over 20 records released to date; as a solo artist, with Throwing Muses, and with 50FOOTWAVE.

Kristin’s acclaimed memoir, based on her teenage diary during a particularly eventful year, titled ‘Rat Girl’ (‘Paradoxical Undressing’ in the UK) was named as one of Rolling Stone’s 25 Greatest Rock Memoirs Of All Time.

In 2018, Hersh announced a new partnership with Fire Records that made the release of her tenth studio album, ‘Possible Dust Clouds’, possible.

‘Possible Dust Clouds’ is a highly personalised gem, delivered as a futuristic rewriting of how music works… A melodious breeze with a tail wind of venomous din. Enveloping the juxtaposition of the concept of ‘dark sunshine’, this brooding solo record was created with friends to expand Kristin’s off-kilter sonic vision; a squally, squeaky mix of discordant beauty. Feedback and phasing gyrate from simply strummed normality, imagine Dinosaur Jr and My Bloody Valentine cranking up a Dylan couplet.

“Imagine truly buying your own sunshine and charm, but also your darkness and violence; the two sides of your psychology showing each other off in relief.” Kristin Hersh

“Dazzling and fantastically bewildering” Drowned In Sound
