Win Regina Spektor Tickets!

Published on January 18th 2006.

The piano-hammering and subversive Regina Spektor arrives in Manchester to promote her ‘Mary Ann Meets The Grave Diggers & Other Short Stories’ compilation that was released last October. You can win a pair of tickets to see her at Manchester Academy 3 on 23rd January.

The 12-tracker compiles the highlights of her entire recording-output so far, a definitive introduction to an enticingly eclectic and classically confounding artiste.

The album makes for some immersing fare; whether the trauma-laden ‘Chemo Limo’, drumstool-whacking ‘Poor Little Rich Boy’, jazz-lite ‘Pavlov’s Daughter’, medieval romp of ‘Prisoners’, or sumptuous strings-laden ‘Us’, Spektor’s gall is in her misty-eyed gazes into roles beyond her own, weaving tales of intrigue and beauty into character-based paeans that all of us can somehow empathise with. Coupled with a voice that contorts, distorts and engulfs, and words beyond her years, this is a talent not to be missed.

Regina Spektor was signed by the legendary Sire in New York during 2004 and has been on tour with the likes of The Strokes. She's also appearances on ‘Jay Leno’ and ‘David Letterman’ along the way.The ability to sell out shows in the US, UK and Europe has stood her in good stead and she now appears at Manchester Academy 3 on 23rd January.
