Ash Playing Surprise NYC Show For Fashion Week

We've just been tipped that Ash and Foreign Islands will be playing a Return To New York gig at Happy Valley next Sunday night in conjunction with Fashion Week.

Presented by beats legend Arthur Baker and designers Felder Felder, I believe this is the first live gig for Ash since Charlotte Hatherley left the band in January. Remaining members Tim Wheeler, Mark Hamilton, and Rick McMurray have been in and out of NYC recently recording a new album.

The show will also feature a ton of guest DJ's from NYC's dance heyday playing their favorite five tracks, including Chris Franz & Tina Weymouth of Talking Heads & Tom Tom Club, Fab Five Freddy, Alan Vega of Suicide, Jellybean Benitez, Wendy James of Transvision Vamp (and now Racine), and Lady Miss Kier of Deee-Lite.
