Anna Calvi at Vicar Street

Venue: 58-59 Thomas Street, Dublin 8 Website: www.vicarstreet.ie  Price: €16.50 Date: November 19th Time: 8:30 pm


Anna Calvi’s self-titled album was released at the beginning of the year to great acclaim. The album was subsequently nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize. Her personal style, coupled with the often haunting rhythms of many of the songs, make for atmospheric performances that continue to woo music lovers and reviewers alike.  She’d been championed by the BBC Sound of 2011 shortlist and the legendary Brian Eno has just hailed her as ‘the best thing since Patti Smith.’ Next week, Calvi will be performing a one-night only gig at Vicar Street. At just €16.50, the tickets are an amazing bargain. I think it unlikely that fans will in future be able to hear Anna Calvi perform for such a measly fee. This dame is marching straight to the top!
