We’re delighted to be promoting an intimate evening with Throwing Muses’ Kristin Hersh!


The immensely talented 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 4 October.

From life as the reluctant front person for 4AD’s Throwing Muses during the 1980s and 1990s, 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.

This intimate, seated show is a co-promotion with Please Please You.
