Julia Holter with Nedelle Torrisi

Seated show

Julia Holter multiple exposure

LA chamber pop artist Julia Holter makes her Cedar debut on tour behind her third album Loud City Song, the follow-up to Ekstasis (2012), and Tragedy (2011). Loud City Song uses a classic literary reference – Colette’s 1944 novella Gigi – as a prism through which Holter is able to explore her own perspective on modern life. In this instance, she explores her own feelings about the superficial celebrity-obsessed contemporary media through a prism of the tale of the young Gigi being unwittingly groomed for a career as a courtesan in gossipy turn-of-the-century Paris. Over the course of the nine songs on Loud City Song, Holter projects the story of Gigi on to modern day LA, navigating its strangeness, beauty and madness from a number of perspectives and vantage points in incredibly evocative fashion.

Opening tonight will be Nedelle Torrisi, a collaborator with Sufjan Stevens and Julia Holter, and now releasing her solo debut (self-titled) in September 2013.
