Hello fellow Laura fans!
So sorry to have left you stranded for such a long time. WordPress has been giving me trouble from my computer recently. But it looks like we owe you some updates! Along with Once I Was An Eagle being nominated for the Mercury Prize again (hoorah!), there are some new US tour dates from Laura for October and November:
(For links to buy tickets, go to the original post on her website, here.)
21 October – Los Angeles, CA – The Cathedral Sanctuary at Immanuel Presbyterian Church
22 – San Francisco, CA – Great American Music Hall
24 – Portland, OR – Doug Fir Lounge
25 – Vancouver, BC – Rio Theater
28 – Boulder, CO – eTown Hall
3 November – Marfa, TX – Highland Annex
6 – Austin, TX – Central Presbyterian Church
7 – Dallas, TX – The Kessler
9 – New Orleans, LA – Civic Theatre
11 – Nashville, TN – Marathon Music Works
14 – Atlanta, GA – Terminal West
16 – Athens, GA – Georgia Theatre
Hopefully she’ll book a show Utah, USA at some point so I can see her play again. Is anyone planning on seeing her soon?
If you’re in a Laura-deprived location like myself, I guess videos will have to do. View her appearance and performance on David Letterman from August here. Or take a look at her new music video for “Devi’s Resting Place” here. It’s really just plain beautiful, and very Gothic/Bronte-Sister-Inspired. Which only makes sense because she’s named the Brontes as some of her favorite authors in interviews. That’s one thing I’ve always appreciated about Laura’s music – it’s all so timeless; it feels like it could have been written recently or a whole century ago.
As for interviews, you can read a recent one from her time in Australia here.
I apologize about all of the links, rather than just putting the video in the actual post. For whatever reason, I’m unable to upload videos right now! Have a lovely day.
