Youre going to be trapped in your cubicle for two more hours, and youre already sick of merely streaming PJ Harveys new album over and over again. Luckily, Ms. Polly Jean is about to give you a reason to push whatever you have left to do completely aside.
The 41-year-old Autoharp aficionado will give anyone with an internet connection (thats you) a chance to actually see what one of our most important albums of the year looks like. The best part is that its all about to happen right now. That’s right. At precisely 3 p.m. EST shell be performing Let England Shake in its entirety via webcast. Update: You can now watch the entire performance in the video below.
Interested parties can tune into either Harveys official website, the French music site Deezer, or a cultural channel called ARTE to watch it all go down, and if you still cant get enough of the woman, then pick up the album tomorrow and catch her at one of the tour dates listed below. (She recently added a second NYC date for 4/19.) Tickets for select shows are available at SeatGeek.
