Saw Norah Jones this past Tuesday. She was exactly as you’d expect: very mellow and low-key, even on her more upbeat songs. But, she sounded great and the band was really good. Most importantly, they played everything I wanted to hear them play. So, success.
The encores were done acoustic, in front of a single microphone that might not have even been on – it certainly wasn’t doing much. Still, that was a nice way to hear “Creepin In” and “Sunrise”.
The band, less Jones, opened with a set of instrumentals.
We sat next to a bunch of drunk people, they were loud and annoying. And in front of us was a guy who was incredibly excited to see her – he was literally shaking with joy at times.
Just got Paul Simon tix! Sunday we go see the Pretenders & Stevie Nicks. Trying to talk myself into going to see Tortoise tomorrow night. Also have tix for : Duran Duran, Robyn Hitchcock, Adrian Belew, Silversun Pickups and Green Day. Next few months will be busy!
