With Peggy Sue
11.06.10 | Ogden Theatre
Kate Nash, it turns out, is fucking punk rock. Yes, the Kate Nash with a single called "Merry Happy," the one with the dress-up music videos and glossy studio singles. An understandable first glance might lead you to believe she is all wink and flirt.
Over the course of an hour and a half, Nash provided plenty of reasons to rethink the overall emotional pitch of her music. The show ended with Nash knocking things over and mashing her keyboard with her fists. She was playing "Pumpkin Soup" at the time, which does not really sound like a rager on the album.
