I'm also not so sure I'm into the idea of playing an album live note for note. Why not just listen to the album? With YHF, the material is quite hard to produce live note for note and I appreciate the feat.  But from an experience standpoint, it sounds exactly like the album. No improv, no jams, no solos. 

You don't have to worry about note for note with Dylan.

Last week, Norah Jones at the Hammersmith Apollo. I know, I know, and I was not sure why I'd booked even before it started. I mean, I've never bought the new album. But as I'm sure I bored everyone wi

Going to see the Finn brothers in Central Park this evening. I assumed it would have sold out, but I got a message pushing half price tickets which I couldn't resist. Think it will piss down?  

Saw the Cowboy Junkies again last night, in an ice cold Beacon Theater. They had to wind up a ninety minute set at 11pm - union rules - which is a pity, as I think the audience would have loved anoth

Gig, not really, but Quincy Troupe, (auto)biographer and memorialist of Miles Davis, reading and discussing his lifetime of poetry. He knew everyone; great treasury of memories, and he reads like a musician, foot tapping the beat.

Attending a Vevo event this week for work at Hammerstein Ballroom featuring a mystery performance. You’d think Vevo could source someone good for this.

It was Chloe of Chloe x Halle and she was good. Started with some Nina Simone before doing her hits. She sang live and has some range.

the body - the basic sound, at least at this show, was a really incredible mixture of electronics with harsh bass & guitar, but there's no song writing and it's hard not to think it would be a lot more compelling with better drumming.

Based on my breathless scrutiny of Instagram, Hinds are not only in New York, but were today actually on North 6th Street, and the gig tomorrow will happen short of nuclear war, a startling surge in monkey pox or major violence on public transit.

I am not discounting any of those possibilities but right now I believe I am at last going to see Hinds, and most importantly Ana Perrote, as I assume our Instagram “relationship” means we can hang out after the show.

Well I didn't hang out with Ana, although I nearly had to catch her while she was crowd surfing. 

Hinds sold out the Music Hall of Williamsburg. I know it was not their first New York gig, but it's the first since I discovered them (was it their first headlining gig in the city?). I have been consuming them on YouTube for the past couple of years -- there's plenty of live footage -- but nothing prepared me for the explosion of energy in front of an adoring audience in a perfectly sized venue.

The physicality of the performance is amazing, constant motion, and you get a completely different perception of their vocal skills than you get from recordings. Ana has the breathy voice, Carlotta the squeaky one, but on stage they can both step back from the microphones, open their throats, go to their chest voices and really belt.

The glamor and energy of the front line actually made me think of The Clash, although Hinds are women, pretty and all still alive. Then, as if reading my mind, they played "Spanish Bombs." Oh my heart.

We all sang along to "Good Bad Times." A couple of encores, bows, is it all over? No, not until Carlotta and Ana have dived into the crowd and been passed around the room.

Perhaps it was the months, years of anticipation, perhaps it was seeing so little live music since 2019, perhaps it was Ana liking my post on Instagram, but this will go down as one of the most memorable and fun shows I've seen.

All that matters, right?!

This is, indeed great...

Looking at that set list reminds me I was disappointed they didn't do "Caribbean Moon" last night. That's how I discovered them, browsing old Kevin Ayers videos, probably during lockdown.
