Anya Marina Touring With The Virgins

Picture From the HAD Archive

You may remember that we were quite taken with Anya Marina's show late last year at Cafe Du Nord. Well now word has come down the wire that Ms. Marina will be touring with The Virgins in the new year, and we couldn't be more enthused. While we've never seen The Virgins live, we keep hearing great things from friends, and it's no secret that we thought Anya's live act was killer.

Sadly, none of the dates are on the West Coast, so if you're out here with us in California you'll just have to make due with Marina's recent performance on Live Daily (link below). Once you're done with that, you can ramp up for her new record Slow And Steady Seduction Phase Two, which goes on sale next Tuesday. For those of you who are on the East coast, definitely check out this sweet double bill - it's not to be missed.
