The Imperial
April 4, 2018 

Kate Nash is one of those artists that you know will never give up. Gaining popularity during the American-Apparel-indie-rock era of music in 2007, it seemed as if Nash faded away into the back while her peers thrived. However, at her Vancouver show, it’s clear that Nash still has that light to create and her fans are here for it.

Launching her self-funded tour at the Imperial, Nash performed alongside an all-girl band, which is just as badass as it sounds. Her newest album, Yesterday was Forever, was funded by her fans with a Kickstarter campaign and pays homage to a prepubescent version of herself. Nash describes the record as an excerpt from her teenage diary.

Taking the stage in a pink metallic spandex suit, Nash opened up her set with “Foundations,” the 2007 break-up anthem off her debut album, Made of Bricks. With a swift transition into “Mouthwash,” also off of Made of Bricks, Nash delivered a high-energy set only slowing it down to talk about the importance of taking care of mental health before performing “Musical Theatre.”

The UK-based artist demonstrated that she is unapologetically herself and hasn’t lost her quirky demeanor, or her potty-mouth. Even with a few technical difficulties during her set with backtracks, the show went on and Nash did not miss a beat. Highlights of the evening included “Merry Happy,” “Dickhead,” and “Life in Pink” off her latest album, Yesterday was Forever.
