Live Shows / Northampton, MA 3/7/17 (review)
« on: March 08, 2017, 10:31:25 am »
was able to drive up from CT w/ a friend to catch this set. kindof an unexpected venue - was so small the copy of her grandfather's mural didn't fit in her setup. the place didn't really seem accommodating to her show, but she still was amazing nonetheless. at some point she got cold and a womyn from the audience gave her a pair of fingerless gloves. i saw v live for the first time my first semester of university, and now seeing her again during my last semester, it feels sorta full circle. anyways, the setlist was:

a thousand miles
carousel (learning to fly intro)
fairweather friend
who's to say
white houses
take it easy
nothing where something used to be
blue pool
love is an art
i don't want to be a bride
mercedes-benz (w/ Tristen)

i was really blown away by some of the things she and Skye have been able to do w/ the loop pedals and reconfiguring her older songs to match her current sound/aesthetic (particularly who's to say). love is an art transfixed me. it seemed like a logical progression from the sound she built on "liberman," but a little more stripped back and adding in more of her classical training/compositional skills. the vocal loops in bride were incredible - truly like a collage of sound textures. the ending was really cute; i think lots of people in the bar knew it and were (soft) singing along.

she also said that this was her last tour in this particular configuration (her and Skye), and hinted the possibility of working on a new record that might tour w/ a full(er) band setup.

Hello! So the experience was not what I expected it to be, it was everything AND MORE. It is quite late but I captured some pretty good video of the new songs she performed. My video stopped halfway through her set because my phone had no more memory. Before I go to bed, I will post the setlist and I'll post the vids/my recap eventually.

Hands On Me
Nolita Fairytale
House of Seven Swords
Take It Easy
White Houses
Tall Tales for Spring
Who's to Say
Get Good
Hear the Bells
I Don't Want to be a Bride
The Marching Line
A Thousand Miles

Cool things to note:
- The new songs were played in a truer representation of what they'll sound like on the new album. Skye used a bunch of rigs and loop pedals and the sonics were incredible
- Vanessa announced her pregnancy again, stated that she usually has wine or whiskey when she plays a show but she can't do that anymore since she's pregnant (congratulations!)
- Before playing Bride, she stated, "This song's called 'I Don't Want to be a Bride'...which I'm now reconsidering."

Alright, will update later. It was so amazing! And I picked up a vinyl/Victor tee. Pics/vids soon.

My sister and I mashed up the two songs in a single arrangement. This can be viewed here:

Have a great holiday season!

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Little Talent - MTV Show
« on: October 04, 2006, 09:59:34 am »
There was this show on MTV called Little Talent where this person wins $500 if he/she wins and they did an acting portion and singing portion to a Thousand Miles! 8O  They both did bad dancing to it but the black guy sang it better that the white gut and the white guy acted better to it than the black guy. It was actually pretty disrespectful to V :!: HAHA. You had to see it.
