I just got back from seeing Fiona Apple and Damien Rice at Sleep Train Pavillion @ Condord.
Damien is emotional and timid as usual. And what’s “Blower’s Daughter Part II” (???)
But Fiona, WHOA, she is 100X more angry live!!! What an angry woman. I doubt she is getting any action with the kind of songs she performs… dammit if I screwed up a date with her she would probably stab me to death with a microphone.
I’d hate to have regret in my luggage but I’m kinda ticked that I didn’t plan this trip better… coz I missed a chance to…
1. Perform at an intimate – not amplified – open mike
2. See RADIOHEAD LIVE playing some secret new tracks (opening by Deerhoof). AAARGH!!
I’ll deal with it. Console myself with dumb quotes. And I guess watching good singer-songwriter under the stars with Bay Area breeze helped ease the pain.
Once again, I’ve a feeling I’ll be back here, sooner than I know…
Special goodbye hugs to John Acuros, Maria, Hankern, and Anita!
