Austin City Limits, January 26!!!
They went on sale at 10am this morning, but I didn't see the ad in the weekly paper until 1pm... I got goosebumps!
And this show is especially rare 'cause she's only playing 6 places in the US before heading off to Australia:
January 22 Santa Ana, CA—The Observatory
January 24 Englewood, CO—Gothic Theatre
January 25 Dallas, TX—South Side Music Hall
January 26 Austin, TX—Austin City Limits Live at The Moody Theater
January 29 New York, NY—Terminal 5
January 30 Philadelphia, PA—Electric Factory
Well-written review from a recent Toronto show.
From "Spin" (2006):
You enjoy playing live? You don't always seem to enjoy it.
That's the thing about me. People think, Oh she's crazy -- she doesn't like to play. But that's not it. It's like tapping into some communal vein. There's always one person who talks to you after you go through this physical, emotional, spiritual, psychological experience. It's a dualship, a communication between the listener and me, even though you're not talking to each other or looking at each other, there's this space that starts living. This space in the universe that we all share, and it opens up, and then we forget we're in a bar. It's like looking at a painting or watching a horse run. It's that thing that keeps us liking life.
