Sky Ferreira at SXSW 2013
Sky Ferriera battled ilness for the bulk of SXSW, losing her voice (and chastity apparently) during the hectic festival. Of the four gigs scheduled, she cancelled one. Ferriera commented on the cancellation:
1. It was one gig.
2. I probably shouldn’t have done the 3 before that after I lost my voice the first time…Which happened in the middle of a set. I went to a doctor and was told I’d be fine to sing after blood test & shots in my ass. Turns out that wasn’t the case and now the left side of my throat is messed up & I have a ear infection. My voice happens to be in bad condition because I kept singing. (My fault)
3. If I didn’t want to play SXSW because I didn’t feel like it or whatever…I wouldn’t have came at all & canceled 3 weeks ago.
4. I would never pretend to be sick to get out of something. Canceling one show was hard enough.
From most accounts her gig with Pissed Jeans and Savages (who also played a BrooklynVegan party and two NYC shows since SXSW….pics HERE and HERE) at 1100 Warehouse for the Pitchfork show on Friday (3/16) went off without a hitch. Check out more pictures from that show below…
