Singer/songwriter/Moldy Peach Kimya Dawson will play a surprise solo show at Foam this Wednesday.

The booking comes courtesy of local music blog iwenttoashow.com. Thanks to a Twitter conversation, the site's co-founder, Jess Luther, had originally booked Dawson to play a show in her Soulard apartment -- "We occasionally host house shows for travelling musicians and locals when proper venues aren't available or financially viable for the artists," she explains -- but interest proved significant enough that the show has now moved to the Cherokee Street venue.

Doors are at 7:30 p.m. with opening band Vanilla Beans set to play at 8 p.m. Tickets, available through tikly.co, are just $11. Check out the Facebook invite for more details.
