Sing Me To Sleep

The show was kind of a bust. About 3 songs in I knew I was probably going to be nodding off right quick. Honestly? I had judgements about her from the moment she walked out. She wasn't at all like I thought. Jeans and flip flops from someone I consider to be a jazz singer? I felt like I should be at a local cafe watching the show instead of having thrown down close to $50 per ticket. And she sang only her new stuff until the very end and even then, we only got maybe 3 songs from her older cds. Supple and I were about the youngest people in the audience.

Next to us sat a woman that I call "Sniffles." Wtf lady!? Why are you sniffling throughout the ENTIRE performance. I wanted to hand her a tissue. I'll admit that a few times I gave her the hard stare. It's no wonder she came alone. Sniffles! Blow your nose or something! (You can catch a glimpse of Sniffles in the background of our picture here.)

At least there is always a night cap to put some life into the evening. Supple and I tried a joint near my house. It's cool and the whiskey drink they served me was strong. Woah. Today we are tackling the world of thrift stores. Wish us luck in our bargain hunting!

LMAO - I so would have handed her a tissue and said, "please blow...no really".

Ick, I hate disappointing live music.
Have fun thrift storing, though. That should not disappoint at all! :)

This may help explain why I almost never go to see live music. On the other hand, last week I was at a place in Halifax and saw some guys called "Cash Only." A Johnny Cash tribute kind of thing and it was great - partly because it was a bar, not a "show", and partly because the songs are so simple and short and peppy, you can't help moving and shouting. The crowd was also kind of cool - sort of grandpa and his grunge kids. People up dancing. Wide, wide age range.

Anyway ... I still like Peyroux but she strikes me as someone best suited for small clubs, bars etc. There's music you listen to and then there's the music you go to see live. I think.

Don't know her... but by appearances only I wouldnt plunk down $50 per ticket. I'd only do that for Johnny Depp or Shinedown. lol

Jeans and flip-flops! Totally unacceptable...and surprisizing. I say this as I listen to Careless Love and picture her singing J'Ai Deux Amours in a dress, giving honor to a great song!!

I'm now not disappointed I won't be seeing her in Ann Arbor.

At least have some respect for people paying to see you perform and actually put on a performance!!

There's nothing worse than paying all that money for something that's a disappointment. Concerts are so expensive nowadays. I guess I've been too hesitant to take the risk lately, for I haven't been to one in almost five years.

Oh, okay, you meant "joint" as in "restaurant" and not as in "you smoked a doobie near your house." Please be a bit more clear about this in the future. God only knows the legal ramifications of blogger admissions. Of course, I admitted to one helluva TP job from my youth. So that's a nice fine right there.
