Kathryn and her band full of a virtual who's who of the Canadian music scene will not only be playing songs from AYMM? but also throwing in some NEW material from an upcoming album that she is in the midst of finishing. Music fans were first introduced to Kathryn through her now defunct band, Immaculate Machine and then everyone became interested once she joined the New Pornographers.
