Martha Wainwright is so fantastic! [Aug. 18th, 2007|12:42 am]

Just got home from seeing Martha Wainwright play at the Shepherd's Bush Empire; she was so incredible! She played many of my favourites from the first album, some new material that sounds fantastic, a Eurythmics cover that was a vast improvement over the original, AND she had a great line in between-songs banter ("I look like a bird in this dress. WAAARRRKKKKK!!!")

I've had such a great run of seeing top quality gigs the last few months, what with Tori Amos and Joan as Police Woman only quite recently.

I am so going to do a portrait of Martha.

I saw Crackers too!

Hi Martin, Thanks for yr gomment, it's my first!

That's right, I saw good ol' Crackers with the Saints at Finsbury Park that day, I just didn't think of it when I wa slisting the ladies coz I didn't have to pay for it! Ha! So you were there too? Shame I didn't spot you... I arrived just in time for St Etienne and then departed shortly thereafter.

Re: I saw Crackers too!

i've never heard her called "crackers" before - that's v.funny

- it was luvly to hear "he's on the phone" live again - but jamelia was the star act of the day imo - possibly becos i wasn't expecting her to be so goob
