Lissie To Perform At Hiro Ballroom In NYC Tonight

Lissie, chosen by Vogue.com, Billboard.com, and Metromix as one of the top artists to see at the 2010 CMJ Music Marathon, is set to perform at her sold-out show tonight at Hiro Ballroom in New York, NY, following nine days of vocal rest. She will continue to be monitored by a doctor through tomorrow afternoon but is scheduled to hit the stage at 8pm. Eight postponed dates in Denver, Minneapolis, Rock Island (IL), Chicago, Toronto, Philadelphia, Washington (DC), and Boston will be rescheduled in early 2011.

Last week, Lissie's network television debut - taped October 7th at the Troubadour in Los Angeles - aired on Last Call with Carson Daly. In addition to current features in Relix and Blurt magazines, she was chosen as a 'Breaking Out' artist in SPIN's October issue. Lissie's debut full-length album, Catching A Tiger, was released in the U.S. August 17th via Fat Possum.
