Marissa Nadler

Marissa Nadler perfoming at the Small Music Theatre in Athens

Last night I went to the Small Music Theatre to see the perfomance of Marissa Nadler. The cute little space was unexpectedly packed. Nadler came out around 11 after 2 other performances. I liked her perfomance a lot but I missed the finale 'cos I was gasping for fresh air- the place was fully packed by heavy smockers. As Wikipedia describes her "Nadler is an American folk musician and fine artist She is often categorised as a member of the "New Weird America" movement, a notion she rejects: "I really dislike that whole brand of the New Weird America because I think a lot of these artists don't have anything to do with each other, except that they're from America and are playing interesting music that's not part of the mainstream. More accurate would be to describe Nadler as a balladeer with American Gothic leanings." Visit her home page here
