Hot tickets: Kate Nash, Ariel Pink, Gabriel Iglesias
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. Nash's breakthrough hit, 2007's "Foundations," finds her listing all the ways her deadbeat boyfriend is an out-of-shape jerk. In the lead single off this year's My Best Friend is You, "Do-Wah-Doo," she talks trash on some girl getting all the attention from the boys and implies she's a -- well, it's not printable here. 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. Tickets go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Ticketfly and cost $20.
