Kimya Dawson announces one-off London show

Former Moldy Peaches singer heads to the UK

Kimya Dawson will play London‘s Union Chapel on September 11.

The US singer, who formed The Moldy Peaches alongside Adam Green, announced the show on her MySpace page.

Dawson recently gained notoriety after several of her songs were used in the Hollywood movie ‘Juno’.

The singer, who usually keeps a low profile, admitted that her new-found fame might force a change in her lifestyle.

“I’m sure that I’m going to have to do some things differently,” she told “I’m afraid if we did the sort of group hugs that I’ve been doing [at gigs] in the past, then I might get crushed to death if too many people start coming around.”

Dawson will also perform at End Of The Road festival in Dorset on September 14.
