Kate Nash played a tiny gig last night (September 10) at London’s Barfly venue, where she had to deal with a lewd heckle that threatened to ruin the set.

The gig was being held to celebrate the tenth anniversary of radio station Xfm.

As Nash performed ‘Little Red’ near the end of her set, playing keyboard solo, a male heckler who seemed drunk bellowed: “Get your muff out!” during a quiet moment of the song.

Most punters in the venue sighed with displeasure at the heckle with some hurling abuse back at him, but Nash responded by saying “Boo”, and finishing the song without breaking stride.

Ryan Jarman of The Cribs, who Nash has been romantically linked with, was watching the gig from the back of the venue. He threw a pint glass at the offending heckler after the show ended, but missed.

Previous to the heckle Nash had wowed the crowd with hits from her number one album, ‘Made Of Bricks’. Many super-fans were in attendance, and Nash was adorned with gifts from them, including a meticulous hand-made brooch.

Kate Nash played:

'Shit Song'
'Stitching Leggings'
'Caroline Is A Victim'
'Nicest Thing'
'We Get On'
'Skeleton Song'
'Merry Happy'
'Little Red'
