Thu 24 Jul – She & HimFreakwater
opened. This was so momentous for me. I hadn't realized they were still together - or that they played shows. I had more or less resigned myself to not seeing them in concert. But there they were. Catherine Irwin
and Janet Bean
's voices sound so amazing together. And there are moments when the arrangements of the songs - especially where they break the kind of formal regularity of country/folk ballads to elongate a word or line - are just so inspired and interesting.
Still gushing, obviously.She & Him
were great, too. Zooey has quite the voice - it's flirtatious and it bends around notes in a way that makes me think of a playful Billie Holiday.
And it sure was cute when she and M. Ward
sat down at the piano together. Lovely.
