Throwing Muses


On this tour, alternative-era icons Throwing Muses are celebrating three decades of stunning quasi-bummer songs about losing your mind. The on-again, off-again group also recently released a new compilation, imaginatively titled Anthology, which contains rare gems alongside classic songs like “Vicky’s Box” and “Bright Yellow Gun.” And though their lineup has changed a bit in its dormancy—the group has now become a trio, as founding singer-guitarist Tanya Donelly has not re-joined for the occasional reunion shows—frontwoman Kristin Hersh is still capable of leading the group through captivating sets, as she did when she came to Brooklyn two years ago.
