Kate Nash is going to make you be her friend, whether you like it or not. That wasn’t a problem for her last night at Union Transfer where she played pop hits to an exuberant crowd of teens and twenty-somethings.
Her fans already thought she was the coolest for many reasons — punking up the usually tame “Mouthwash” with shredding guitars and devil horns; telling a quirky story about having part of her heart lasered off; speaking about the importance of women in music; referring to her band, and later the audience, as her “girl gang” — but the affection hit its stride with the perky “Oh My God!” about halfway in. Sensing some hesitation on the part of the crowd to go as crazy as she, Nash coaxed it with a purring, “Come on Philly, you’re not shy. I’ve been here before.”
When that didn’t work, she leapt off the stage and waded among concert-goers, singing and starting mini-mosh pits while throwing hugs like a boxer throws ‘bows. The crowd went nuts. Goal achieved, Nash wandered back to the stage, took a drink of water, and quipped, “I think we know each other better now.” And thank goodness for that, because we could all use a crazy gal pal like her.
