TONIGHT: Throwing Muse's Kristen Hersh

Throwing Muses were one of the bigger names in the American College Rock scene of the 1980s and 1990s. A "girl band" (well, in the beginning) and a great band period, they were the first American band to be signed to the prestigious Brit label 4AD in 1986. They disbanded in 1996, a couple of years after Tanya Donnelly of the Breeders, then Belly, left TM duet to creative differences. Kristen Hersh started a solo career and has produced some little indie folk-pop gems. I never thought Belly quite compared (although the Breeders definitely had their moment in the sun!). I believe there are still some tickets left for this one at the Nouveau Casino tonight. A good way to decompress for TGIF...dude.--jh
