Singer/songwriter/Moldy Peach Kimya Dawson will play a surprise solo show at Foam this Wednesday.
The booking comes courtesy of local music blog iwenttoashow.com. Thanks to a Twitter conversation, the site's co-founder, Jess Luther, had originally booked Dawson to play a show in her Soulard apartment -- "We occasionally host house shows for travelling musicians and locals when proper venues aren't available or financially viable for the artists," she explains -- but interest proved significant enough that the show has now moved to the Cherokee Street venue.
Dawson, who is based in Seattle, is best known for her work as one half of the Moldy Peaches. She's also released a series of solo albums and collaborated with Aesop Rock.
