Cat Power was her awkward self, but she eventually calmed down and got into her groove and put on a great show. The audience was rather annoying. Constant getting up and down and shouting at the performer. This was supposed to be an intimate show, behave yourselves!
Cat Power’s Chan (pronounced “Shawn”) Marshall exists on a plane somewhat different than yours or mine, as anybody who has heard her sing knows. Her voice is unlike anyone you’ve heard before, combining raw intimacy with a gruff, chalky confidence, and while any attempt to interpret her lyrics comes up short, their plain-spoken lines belie an otherwordly perspective on primal human emotions. She’s abstract, but always honest and true. Chan Marshall stops time. She sits at a piano or lays her guitar across her lap and draws all the attention in the room and makes the world stop spinning. Her music seems to rise from nowhere, envelop the room, then vanish; listeners know they’ve been hit by something but they’re not sure what.
