Show Preview - Jesca Hoop - 4.16.12 - Rex Theater - Pittsburgh - Concert Preview
From her press:
Last year she tantilised fans with the Snowglobe EP, a haunting collection of experimental bare-bones folk. City Bird (below), taken from the release, is a harrowing account of loneliness and desperation. Her inspiration comes from memories of time spent living in the underbelly of LA, on a skid row. She remembers “an elite hotel with a skirt of cardboard houses wrapped around its foot”, after a surge in homelessness during the ’80s. “The block I moved into was lined with these cardboard houses and people sleeping in doorways. What left the biggest impression on me was the look in their eyes. I witnessed many possessed,” she recalls.
Jesca will be opening for the Punch Brothers sponsored by WYEP. The show begins at 8p with tickets $20. More information can be found on JH at these sites:
