As much as I enjoy concerting, I would greatly appreciate it if artists embraced the weekend show. These mid-week concerts are killing me. I might have to start drinking caffeine in the morning. Radical, I know.
Last night, Westcoast Walker and I took in Andrew Bird at the Vogue Theatre and it was a blast. The perfect combination of violin, whistling and handclaps. I’ve never seen someone play the violin with such vigour before. He played a lot of his older songs, which brought out the guitar, which was something I really missed on his last album.
Before his encore, he ended with a perfect rendition of Fake Palindromes that brought everyone to their feet. Twas great.
Laura Marling opened. This was one of the songs I enjoyed from her last night.
