C3X WORLD TOUR: WEEK TWO
PRETTY IN PUNK
Tonight we head on down to CBGB. It may not look like much more than a (now closed) small venue in the south of Manhattan, but this little place was the home to the early pioneers of punk. Let's enjoy this setting of rock history as we introduce our acts.
Our main act for tonight: PJ Harvey!
PJ Harvey Pack by yaniv297
A legendary headliner fitting for such a legendary venue. PJ Harvey boasts a career spanning three decades, with music ranging from powerful alternative rock to softer grooves. In her time she has picked up two Mercury Prize wins (the only artist to have ever done so) and produced collaborations with other similary big names of modern music.
Tonght Yaniv brings you a collection of music from her classic To Bring You My Love and the critically acclaimed [i]Songs from the City, Songs from the Sea[i] with a guest appearance by Radiohead's Thom Yorke. Top it off with a collaboration with Nick Cave and we have a show to remember here for sure.
And now out wonderful female-fronted supporting acts!

Liz Phair - Supernova
From author Mr. Prezident:
Liz Phair's sophomore release "Whip-Smart" was one of 1994's most anticipated albums, and was nominated for a Grammy in 1995 for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. The crunch-pop roar of "Supernova" proved that Liz could swing along with Elastica and shred like Matthew Sweet.
The risqué narrative expands on Liz Phair's favourite themes: sex, love, power chords, and rock & roll; about the moment when you first fall for someone, when everything that person does seems like the coolest thing a person could ever do.
And here we go! Another week and now we get the the tour really going. Special thanks to all the participating authors and you, the C3 community, for supporting us in our tour.
See you next week!
