Last night, St. Vincent's sold out performance at the Hollywood Palladium.   When she says, "Let's go faster," buckle up.  She kills it.

This was a three part show, opened by a brief set from her aunt and uncle, Tuck and Patti.  Patti can scat sing.  They did a nice medley of "Castles Made of Sand" and "Little Wing."

Then, St. Vincent came out in a fuschia body suit and matching knee high boots.  She played about 10 or 12 old songs (somewhat reimagined) in their order of release, beginning with "Marry Me."

After a very brief intermission, she returned in a silver lame shift and played her new album top to bottom.  Before starting "New York," she ad libbed a few lines subbing LA for New York (apparently she has a home in LA now).

Strongly recommended.


Then that happened.

I had no idea Tuck and Patti were St. Vincent's aunt and uncle.

It's worth reading MFF.

Apparently when she was in her teens, Annie Clark accompanied Tuck and Patti on some of their tours (as a roadie).  Tuck remarked that he knew Annie before she was cannonized.


Then that happened.

Rachel Bloom, Jazz at Lincoln Center, 2/10. An awful lot of fun, albeit not the tightest show I've ever seen, and she sang most of the hits - JAP Battle Rap, First Penis I Saw, We Tapped That Ass. Plus a heartfelt(ish) version of Stacy's Mom, because Adam Schlesinger is the Executive Music Producer of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,and was also onstage. I'm not positive that this was the first show I've ever seen in which the featured performer stripped down to her bra for one number and put on tap shoes for another. But it's probably the one I'll remember best.

One in my future:  Vernon Reid and George Porter Jr playing together in a New Orleans dive. How can that not be great? :D

Wasn't it interesting how funny it was at times?

 

The intense part I expected.  The sound in that theatre was as if hearing stuff for the 1st time.

George Porter Jr. Trio with Michael Lemmler on keys and soon to be famous Terrance Houston on drums. Great mix of jazz and funk with the legendary (and deservedly so) GPJr running the show.  He plays bass like no else I know. Dragged a guitar playing friend of mine to the show last night and he was mesmerized. Told him he should be ashamed of himself for not seeing GPJr sooner.

 

Will be seeing him at least twice at Jazzfest with two different bands and he just announced a Shabbat performance with his Runnin Pardners Band at Touro Synagogue in New Orleans while we are there so that would make three. Only in New Orleans does a funk band play at a synagogue.

Another upcoming one that has me excited. DMD band which is Doug Wimbish, Marcus Machado and Daru Jones playing for free at the ACE Hotel during Jazzfest. I've seen these guys do a tribute to JDilla that was one of the best things I've ever seen. Plan is day at Jazzfest followed by Drago's Grilled Oysters with a few Abita Ambers then this:

Unsurprisingly extended through mid-December.
