Like Lily Allen, Kate Nash is a foul-mouthed British singer dishing out kiss offs, call outs and rants in a cockney accent that would make Eliza Doolittle proud.

Potty mouth aside, Nash can craft a solid tune when she hits her marks, whether they be straight up pop, a girl group throwback or a riot grrrl anthem. Her tour comes to the 9:30 Club on Nov. 15.
