After breathing life into Breadwoman at CTM Festival in Berlin & in the UK this past winter, Anna Homler & Steven Warwick will perform the music of Breadwoman this June at Pitchfork’s Northside Festival Showcase in Brooklyn, NY (6/11) and will open for Grouper at ‘Beyond The Gate’ in Chicago, IL (6/18).
Holly Herndon has been invited as the main support for Radiohead at their European shows later this month.
Holly will join Radiohead for the entirety of their sold out 8-date tour. Herndon’s critically acclaimed album Platform married emotional and political critique with innovative club music. The interactive and ecstatic experience of her live performance has now evolved into a group which includes the artists Colin Self and Mat Dryhurst. The trio plan to work on new Holly Herndon material, due later this year.
