Influential songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Kristin Hersh, leader of the indie rock band, Throwing Muses and the noise rock power trio, 50 Foot Wave, is on the road with her highly acclaimed Fire Records release, “Possible Dust Clouds.” The touring trio is a hard hitting super group: Fred Abong, bass player from Throwing Muses (who opens solo, promoting his new ep, “Pulsing”) and Rob Ahlers, drummer of 50 Foot Wave. These electric trio shows are loud, tight and intense, featuring material from across Kristin’s thirty year career.

“Kristin Hersh is a musical genius” — Huffington Post



“A fearless rock innovator” — New York Times

Songwriter, guitarist and singer, Kristin Hersh has released over 20 records solo, with Throwing Muses and 50FOOTWAVE. She’s also the author of an acclaimed memoir — based on her teenage diary — about a particularly eventful year, titled “Rat Girl” in the USA (published by Penguin), and titled “Paradoxical Undressing” in the UK (published by Atlantic Books)

After decades of making music and with more than two dozen records under her belt, Kristin Hersh can claim a remarkable first with her latest album: She knows what her songs are about ― even if they were written by an alternate personality that has tormented her for most of her life.

You might know Hersh, 52, as one of the frontwomen for Throwing Muses, the high-octane alt-rock band that played clubs with R.E.M. and the Pixies in the 1980s, found commercial success in the 1990s, and still records and tours. You might know her from her darker and more intricate solo albums. It’s possible you know her from her rock band, 50FootWave, or her seven books. There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of her.
