This event is all ages
Kimya Dawson was born and raised in Bedford Hills, NY. After meeting Adam Green in a record store in upstate New York, the duo formed a band called the Moldy Peaches. They began playing the anti-folk scene in New York City, and slowly built a very loyal following. Since the Moldy Peaches went on hiatus a few years ago, though, she's opened for artists like They Might Be Giants, Regina Spektor, Third Eye Blind, and the Butchies.
She's leant her voice to recordings by Ben Kweller, The Mountain Goats, and others. Dawson released her first solo album in 2002. Both as a member of Moldy Peaches, and as a solo artist, Dawson has toured extensively throughout the US and Europe. She's released four solo albums. Some work the Moldy Peaches did years ago was picked up as the soundtrack to the major motion picture Juno in 2007.
