Nina Nastasia in concert at Esopus Space

September 21, 2010

Nina Nastasia self-released her legendary debut, Dogs, in an edition of 1,500 hand-packaged copies in 2000. Five albums have followed, all recorded by Steve Albini: The Blackened Air (2002), Run to Ruin (2003), On Leaving (2006), You Follow Me (2007), and, in 2010, the stunning Outlaster, widely hailed as one of her most accomplished works to date. The riveting singer-songwriter (and Esopus 12 contributor) performed this rare, intimate acoustic show—her only one in New York in nearly six months—before embarking on her fall 2010 European tour.
