In a vaguely surreal turn of events, last night we found ourselves in the attic of the Hackney Picturehouse listening to our music editor Kate Nash rocking out her own renditions of songs from 90s cult show Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s musical episode “Once More With Feeling”.

Joined by Emmy the Great and a cast of post-modern riot-grrrls, our Kate donned blonde locks, a cheerleading uniform (resplendent with with poms poms and ‘cheer’ socks) and an arsenal for slaying – including cross necklace, wooden stakes and holy water.

Is it wrong that we liked Kate as a blonde?!
