Kristin Hersh performing at Shuba's in Chicago, Illinois December 2005.
Kristin never disappoints. Whether she's performing her solo works acoustically, or with her new "surf punk" band 50 Foot Wave, or with Throwing Muses, the trend-setting alternative band she founded in the mid 80's, her enthusiasm for music shines through.
Called "The Godmother of alternative", Kristin created a musical style unlike any before (or since). Deep, dark lyrics, sophisticated guitar work, and vocals that range from a whisper to screams (often in one breath) are at the center of all three performances.
