Bat for Lashes' October 29th gig at KOKO here in London sold out in the blink of an eye, so being the good sports that they are a second show on October 28th was promptly added. The band's apparent popularity is due in no small part to the excellent Mercury Prize-nominated album Fur and Gold, released back in late 2006. Pretty much everyone is comparing the group's sound to Björk, Cat Power, Tori Amos, and Kate Bush, so I will too.
I'll be at the show on October 28th and will report back on just how awesome or non-awesome the band is live.
