On Friday, September 12, the reclusive but still supersexy Jean Marie will retire from semiretirement to return to the stage. Presale tickets went onsale at 4am last night and their prices rivaled the exorbitance of a seated Tame Impala show. In typical New York fashion, tickets to Jean Marie’s New York engagement sold out in 3 minutes. Fortunately, during the night of the performance, admission will be free to all concert-goers who did not buy a presale ticket.
In an interview with the artist, she said that she was looking forward to playing again for people who talk over her while eating french fries. She added that she missed playing for audiences who only half-listen because they are preoccupied by their phones.

Orenda Fink’s new album Blue Dream is exquisite.
Admission: I saw her perform once at Cafe du Nord and during her encore, I was so moved that even though I tried to keep them in check, hot tears rolled down my cheeks. She’s that good.
