I don't need to add anymore superlatives, just some news and music to find here... Caitlin Rose is coming back for a UK / European tour in February and March 2011. Hooray!! I'm sure there will be some additional / European dates added in due course, but for now we have the following dates in the UK:
Friday 11th February - London, Camden Barfly - £10 http://www.hmvtickets.com/events/2194
Monday 7th March - London, Borderline - £10 http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_london&query=detail&event=423754
Tuesday 8th March - Oxford, Jericho - £9 http://www.seetickets.com/Event/CAITLIN-ROSE/The-Jericho/529507
Friday 11th March - Glasgow, Stereo - £8 http://www.ticketweb.co.uk/user/?region=gb_scotland&query=detail&event=423140
Saturday 12th March - Manchester, Academy 3 - £9 http://www.seetickets.com/Event/CAITLIN-ROSE/Academy-3/529506
With 'Own Side Now' coming out in the States on March 15th this could well be the last chance to see Caitlin before the festival season.
Another blogger who seems to love Caitlin as much as me is Drunkenwerewolf. They've hosted various covers by Caitlin on their blog, go and download them now. They are varying quality as some are live rips from YouTube (I'm guessing) but adding those to the collection of tracks in my archive makes a lovely little collection alongside the official releases.
Another reminder to get the album from Rough Trade whilst stocks of the 'Columbia Hotel EP' last because it is rather lovely and contains not one, but two festive treats... Here's a couple of streaming delights for your ears this Friday:
