It’s been a few years since I had heard Kate Nash’s name but as soon as she announced her Thursday, April 19th show at The Fine Line, I started spilling over her discography with a sense of excitement and impatience to finally be able to catch this songstress live. On the coattails of Kate Nash’s recent album announcement for Yesterday Was Forever is another announcement of a North American tour set to begin in the spring. Beginning April 4th in Vancouver, Nash and her all-female group will spend three weeks traveling across the United States.
Yesterday Was Forever is an excerpt from Nash’s teenage diary. She suggests through her music that the difficulty of being a teenager is more understood now than it used to be. She remembers being made fun of for writing in a diary; she feels now that a teenager writing in a diary could be something other than social suicide. It could even be the basis for a studio album.“Yesterday was forever is about your dreams being trapped in a time capsule, being caught in a moment for too long, and looking back through heart shaped glasses,” she says.
Not only can you expect to hear some new songs off Yesterday Was Forever, I think it’s safe to assume Kate will treat the audience to some old favorites from (my favorite album) Made of Bricks which came out in 2007. She clearly can’t ignore her 2010 My Best Friend is You or her 2013 Girl Talk… I guess what I’m trying to say is this will be an amazing show full of nostalgic sounds, and new songs. It’s definitely a night that can’t be missed.
Miya Folick will be opening the Thursday night show. Miya is from Santa Ana, California and grew up going to a Jodo Shinshu Buddhist church in Orange County. She played basketball for 9 years and hated it the entire time. She went to NYU, but stopped going to class and would spend all day walking around the city by herself. So she left and moved home and spent the rest of that semester learning how to play guitar from a person she went to high school with. She plays music because forming thoughts into sounds blends emotional and rational thought in a way that turns her on. She met my band on Tinder.
