Kirsten Price is Playing the Highline Ballroom on Friday, July 11th

Kirsten Price's CD Release Party is at Highline Ballroom on July 11thAfter catching Kirsten Price's show last year at Crash Mansion, I was certain that she would be quickly moving up to playing bigger rooms. Kirsten went on to sell out Joe's Pub, open for Sly & the Family Stone's comeback shows at B.B. King's and she was handpicked to open for Wyclef Jean.

This Friday, Kirsten is headlining the Highline Ballroom. This show is the release party for Kirsten's debut CD Guts & Garbage which was just released on July 1st. (The disc is available on Amazon, iTunes, etc.)

Kirsten's music isn't that easy to classify with a single label so the closest label that I can come up with is "blued-eyed soul". This isn't the typical pop-charts type music though as Kirsten's music has a raw sexuality beneath it that is closer in style to Prince than some of her female contemporaries. I really like the quote from the Washington Post reviewer that is posted on Kirsten's MySpace profile: "London-to-Brooklyn transplant Kirsten Price has ferocious rock-and-soul pipes (think Joss Stone or Toni Childs with rougher edges and a mean streak)".

There are a number of tracks from Guts & Garbage streaming on Kirsten's MySpace profile (link below).

Tickets for Friday night's show are $15.00.
