Watch: Kate Nash as Buffy Performs Live 'Once More, With Feeling' Musical Episode
Adorable British pop singer Kate Nash teamed up with fellow rocker Emmy The Great to make this fangirl's dream-come-true when they took over a screen at London's Hackney Picture House to perform a full tribute to the musical episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, "Once More With Feeling" on Halloween night.
Nash performed in a high-school era Buffy costume, complete with wooden stakes and cheerleader skirt, backed up by band members accordingly attired as the other members of "The Scooby Gang," including Emmy as lesbian witch Willow. The band performed every track from the show's sole musical episode, including the show's theme song, in a loving, campy send-up to the series that has become a cult classic.
Fellow Buffy fangirls are in good company, as Nash clearly counts herself among us. Nash told British music magazine NME the performance was the realization of a long-standing dream for Nash and her friend Emmy.
"Me and Emmy were spending loads of time together over the summer having an emotional time, and we used to just drink bottles of wine and watch Buffy and watch movies with Cher and tweet Cher quite a lot," said Nash. "We used to say that our two dreams were for Cher to tweet us back and for us to cover all of the Buffy songs from 'Once More, With Feeling,' and do a Buffy show. And suddenly we're doing it and doing rehearsals and now it's like the biggest dream of my life coming true."
Nash said she hopes to make the performance an annual event. Watch Nash and Emmy queer the song "I'll Never Tell," performed in the Buffy episode by Xander (Nicholas Brendan) and Anya (Emma Caulfield), below, and check out video from the entire performance here.
