So how excited were you when you read that Fiona Apple is releasing a new album this year? How many times did you replay “Criminal”? And most importantly, did you dig out your 90s alterna-girl tie dye garb and dark eyeliner? OK, maybe we can live with you skipping the last one, some things are definitely best left in the past — but the woman herself, the inspiring Fiona Apple, is most definitely not one of those things.
In more Awesome Fiona Apple Related News, it’s just been announced that she’ll be opening Pitchfork’s official showcase at SXSW. If you’re lucky enough to be heading to the festival, clear your schedule at 8 p.m. on March 15 and make for the Central Presbyterian Church like a fox, because the space only holds about 400 people (401 including Fiona). It’s also a rare occasion for a performer who has only graced the stage a handful of times since 2007.
