Playing The Mohawk, June 29th, Her Space Holiday with Lymbyc Systym.
Her Space Holiday will be back in Texas after a four year break from the Lone Star state to promote their new album, “XOXO, Panda and the New Kid Revival”. The 14-track album is two and a half years in the making, and is set to be released on September 9th, 2008. The new album doesn’t contain any samples or electronics, just natural instruments which is quite a change from past HSH releases. The album features guest appearances by Caitlin Love, Kenneth Holland, and Hanni el Khatib. HSH was booked to play SXSW, and I remember my dismay when I saw their name on the south-by schedule one day…and then gone the next. They had to cancel that date, so here’s a second shot at ATX love. The new Texas tour date with Lymbyc System was added in short notice and tickets will be sold at the door, so get there early.
Added Coolness Factor Bonus Point: HSH has toured with the likes of Bright Eyes, Pinback and The American Analog Set (three all time awesome indie bands).
Her Space Holiday – Key Stroke

A Handful of My Favorite Her Space Holiday Words and Songs from Past Albums:
Let your body sink into me, like your favorite memory. Like a line of poetry or a f***ing fit of honesty.
Her Space Holiday – Something to Do With My Hands
If she had her way, she would know what to say to that girl that comes into her store. By herself, but not alone. It’s her confident charm. And the curve of her arms that tightly bends her circuitry, into a twisted mess of interesting.
Her Space Holiday – A Match Made In Texas
I did this myself, it’s a sick cry for help. But it doesn’t mean the situation’s clean. Additional stress that will come from the press, the mess I made putting my life on parade. Now the writers can say “We were right all along, you can’t make someone love you with your songs.”
Her Space Holiday – My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend
I used to know this boy who took notes in a book. But he ripped out all the pages, before I got a look. At all the words he scribbled, at all the lines he filled. But the ink stains on his fingers, told me he was skilled. At capturing a feeling, that most of us just miss. The simple pain of living, with goodbyes on our lips.
Her Space Holiday – Japanese Gum
Sympathy is everything, when everything fell short. A textbook example of childhood in shambles. It’s not what I want, but it’s what I got. Eventually, I came to see I was seeing things all wrong. I’ve no expectations of people who gave in. My broken heart beats like a bomb.
