27 sept. 2010, 22h23mAlthough it was a very enjoyable evening to listen to the incredible voice of Aimee Mann, I was bit disappointed in the song selection.
Here is the setlist that she played:
The Moth [This was performed as a solo, before the other band members came on stage]
Going Through the Motions
At this point in the show she told the audience that she and Paul Bryan are working on musical based on the theme of the concept album The Forgotten Arm. She played four of the songs from this forthcoming musical. Before each song she set-up the situation for the song in the musical, which was nice.
You've Got to Be Willing to Hurt the One You Love [from forthcoming musical*]
Easy to Die [from forthcoming musical*]
Eiffel Tower [from forthcoming musical*]
I Cannot Get My Head Around It
Today's the Day
Guys Like Me
Build That Wall
One [Harry Nilsson cover]
This is How it Goes [she started this song by playing a recorder which worked very well]
* Musical "Forgotten Arm" has been put on hold indefinitely.
I am glad that she did not neglect songs from the Magnolia soundtrack [although I could have passed on One as it is not even one of her's] as she passed on songs from Bachelor No. 2, which is one of my favorite of hers. I missed hearing Ghost World, Calling It Quits, Nothing is Good Enough, and Red Vines. I did at least get to hear Driving Sideways in the encore. Also, missing from the encore was Voices Carry. I am sure that she is really tired of playing that song, but so many of her fans were introduced to her through that song.

27 sept. 2010, 22h20mI believe that I was introduced to the very talented Laurie Anderson from the HBO produced video of her concert performance called Home of the Brave. Since then I have purchased all of her music and have tried to see her perform every time she came to the San Francisco Bay Area.
Most recently, she came to the Berkeley university campus to perform Delusion last May. The first time I saw her live was for the Strange Angels tour. Although spoken word had always been a part of Anderson's music, Strange Angels was mainly musical pieces that featured her singing, while Delusion is mainly a collection of spoken word pieces. It seems every time I see her perform she has reinvented what her musical performances are about. Delusion was not an exception. Her music defies description. What has remain constant in her performances is the evocation of feeling and emotion. She paints landscapes with music, words, and song. These landscapes also cause one to pause and think about life and what it all means. Very different and enjoyable evening with Laurie Anderson. Her music almost requires one to see it live. If you can, see her perform live.
