Indie Rocker Cat Power Brings the Blues and More to City Arts Fest
The last date listed for Cat Power was Thursday, Oct. 21, 2010 / 8:00pm (Doors Open at 7:00pm).
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.
