Edie Sedgwick festival appearance and tour dates announced!

Edie Sedgwick is the transgendered reincarnation of a vacuous Andy Warhol Superstar who died of a barbiturate overdose in 1971. A visionary artist who lay dormant in her host organism until his first epileptic seizure in 2001, Edie appeared at the dawn of the New Millennium to save the world by singing, writing, and producing video about celebrities. Armed with a video projector and an occasional backing band, Edie travels through the dark American night presenting auditory and visual art that honors the likes of Sissy Spacek, Martin Sheen, and other celebrity co­-conspirators.

If smarter, edgier, more ridiculous, more serious, more compelling art has been made, is being made, or will ever be made, Edie is not aware of it. Her new album, Things are Getting Sinister and Sinisterer is available now through the very awesome Dischord Records.

In other exciting news, Edie Sedgwick will be heading across the pond to the UK and mainland Europe this April after being invited to play the prestigious Hinterland Festival in Glasgow. The festival takes over fifteen venues, over two days (April 30th and May 1st 2009), around the city and fills them with over 100 bands, including our dear Edie Sedgwick. Edie will be playing on Thurs April 30th, details of the times and venues are not released to the public until the day of the event. Two day "early bird" tickets are currently on sale, for a limited time only, exclusively from the Hinterland Website.
