Last spring was the first time I heard EMA and I was instantly hooked. Last summer, I saw her play a great show at Glasslands. Past Life Martyred Saints was my favorite album of 2011. She's followed that with some great bonus tracks that we've featured on the blog – "Angelo" and most recently, the song for anti-bullying, "Take One Two."
So it would be fair to say I'm not exactly an unbiased source. But regardless of what I feel, I just know, empirically, it is going to be a great show tomorrow night, March 16th, at the Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 North 6th Street). It begins at 8:00 PM and features opening acts Talk Normal and Nu Sensae. $12 advance if you order tonight, $15 the day of the show. A steal! You can follow the venue link above or use this link to order.
This is likely to be the last tour in the US behind this material for EMA, and while I'm confident Erika & company have a very bright future, it's always nice to catch the end of a special run before the next phase happens. I'll be there, and all of you in the NYC area should come, too.
