Canadian electro goddess Grimes (aka Claire Boucher) — easily one of the standout artists of 2012 following her excellent LP Visions — will grace our shores for the first time later this year. She will perform shows in Wellington and Auckland in December, and as anyone who has seen her recent Jools Holland and Fallon performances can attest, this is going to be one weird, unique gig not to be missed.
[UPDATE] Grimes’ Auckland show at the Kings Arms Tavern has sold out.
Check out the details below:
