One glance at the bill for this year’s V Festival, and it’s easy to see how the annual double venue music spectacular sold out in a mere 90 minutes. From Elly Jackson’s giant black druid-esque hood, to Kate Nash‘s fringed unitard, the theme for the festival’s second day seemed to be “Outrageous Outfits”. None of the artists, however, could compare to Goldfrapp‘s bizarre —but wonderful—jacket that looked as though it was made from discarded VHS tapes. Flip through to see Lissie, Florence And The Machine, Mika, The Temper Trap and more highlights from the V Festival. More »
We were cursing ourselves for not being across the pond this weekend for Europe’s biggest free ticket event of the year: BCC Radio 1’s Big Weekend. Thankfully, we have some smashing concert pics that are almost as good as being there (well, not almost). Flip through to see recent Idolator interviewee Kate Nash, our fav Brit boy band JLS, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, Alicia Keys, Marina And The Diamonds, Florence And The Machine, Rihanna, and Jason Derulo. And if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, catch some of the Big Weekend performances here. More »
Kate Nash began her L.A. show last night at the El Rey Theater by warning the audience if they weren’t there to have a good time they would be escorted out of the venue. She then kicked off the night with the first track off of My Best Friend Is You “Paris”. Kate’s infectiously fun attitude, combined with her dare to Angelenos to out-scream the crowds at the other stops on her North American tour, led to the highlight of the evening: a stage full of Kate Nash fans dancing and thrashing to her new song “Take Me To A Higher Plane”. Flip through to see why Kate Nash will forever leave us feeling “Merry Happy”. More »
Kate Nash, who according to Maura is “a lot less cloying than on record/in the press,” probably should consider visiting every single person who reads British music coverage, because at this rate, “cloying” is leading “not completely self-absorbed” by six lengths. More »
Coachella line-up update! Hot shit! Five-words-or-less take on each new addition: Aphex Twin (ooh), Goldfrapp (yay), Kate Nash (ugh no), Serj Tankian (iffy on the solo stuff), Redd Kross (!), and Adele (eh). More »
Now that Lily Allen has lost about 20 pounds and traded in the sneakers (no, I will not call them trainers) for heels, who will be cute (“real-life cute”), spunky, catchy, relatable, over-hyped, and British for us? Who will weigh at least 120 pounds, wear quirky garments, and sing to us about boy trouble over laboriously-produced and highly infectious pop hooks? Ladies and gentlemen: Kate Nash.
