Kate Nash in London born and bred, so it’s no surprise she feels strongly about her city.
The Harrow-born singer brought her Made Of Bricks 10th anniversary tour – yes, the album is really a decade old – to London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire for an emotional homecoming, performing the indie album in its entirety.
However, she took a break from bouncing around stage in red hotpants and a crop top (inspiration from her Glow character, perhaps?) to urge her fans to ‘fuck the right-wing bullshit’.
Kate told the crowd: ‘Fuck all the right-wing bullshit, because it’s really important to take note of the fact that we’re all here together, and we’re in a room of cool, beautiful, magical strangers.
‘Look around the room and feel good about that. Because coming together to celebrate music right now is a really sacred, beautiful space. And that’s also being fucked with. But the fact that you’re here tonight and being open and loving and so shiny and magical and cool is really fucking great.
‘Take that home tonight, feel fucking good about who you are and about this city, and don’t be shit on by these fucking wankers.’
The last night was accompanied with a graphic hand gesture… which we’ll leave to your imagination.
The O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire was jam-packed for the second of Kate’s two London dates, with the singer barely audible sometimes over the noise of the crowd.
While a new song got an airing, the biggest screams of the night were of course saved for Foundations.
