Our seats were surprisingly good for such a low price! Her voice was amazing, every bit as good as any of the studio recordings. We were a bit disappointed at the lack of an encore song or two.

Quotes & Highlights

Listen to Cat Power song clips on MySpace.


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.
