How was your experience?
We arrived late for Juliette Lewis, so only caught a song or two- she was OK, her band was great- but seriously better than Cat Power! They were so dreadful, we had to leave until the Pretenders came on- and they were truly amazing! Chrissie hasn't lost any of her edge- and Martin's drumming is even better. The new members of the band know how to interact with Chrissie and Martin to make it be a total cohesive band. The new album's songs sound even better live. Sometimes a veteran band is so over their original hits that they toss them off, but Chrissie and co. definitely pump all the energy into them, and they sound as fresh as in the Eighties. Thanks, Pretenders!!
