Knock ‘em Out


The English pop star Kate Nash is not quite 21, and photos tend to make her look younger: There she is, sipping a milk shake, or giggling, or jumping on a trampoline. On one song from her debut, Made of Bricks, she shouts out her science-class skeleton (“Skeleton, you are/You are my friend”); on another, she tells a boyfriend to “stop being a dickhead.” Nash, no easy prey, has staked her brief career on boys, mostly, and her grown-woman ability to tell ’em off: “Why don’t you just have another beer, then?” she asks. For her two-night run at the Webster, expect many young men doing just that, in the hopes, perhaps, of sharing her trampoline or, even better, becoming memorialized in her next (temporarily) heartbroken song.
