Retro styled pop music and graphic novels. They go hand-in-hand, right? If you furiously shook your head no, then you're probably in the same "hmm, say what?" boat as I am. Thankfully, we've got a bit of info on the fantastic VV Brown, some upcoming live shows, as well as the debut of her new line of graphic novels and comic books.
First up, if you're not headed to Brown's show at Bowery Ballroom...well, you probably should be. Tickets are still available here, and the London lass puts on a great show, with a set of dynamic pipes to match. If you find yourself in another town in the near future, let's hope it's one of the 3 below.
May 10 - San Diego, CA - The Loft (UC San Diego)
May 12 - Los Angeles, CA - The Troubadour
July 10 - Minneapolis, MN - Basilica Block Party (Church Stage)
Now on to the more "randomer" part of this post. Yep, VV Brown is a huge fan of graphic novels and comic books and as a result of this passion, she has created her very own comic book series, titled City of Abacus, which is due to be published and released beginning May 7, 2010. Check out the cover here as well as an exclusive peek inside the pages of the series. I'm intrigued!
