This just popped up on my Google Alerts:

http://www.jweekly.com/blog/full/60686/vanessa-carlton-saves-the-day/

Did you know Vanessa Carlton is the descendent of Russian Jews? Neither did I until the stunning pianist stepped in and saved the day at the 10th Annual JFCS Emigre Gala last weekend in San Francisco.

The sweet-voiced ingenue came in last minute when scheduled performer Regina Spektor fell in. Carlton played a beautiful set of both hits (see above video) and new tunes she declared unheard by any audiences thus far. To catch her next big act, check out out her Facebook page.


Did anyone know about this, she was obviously last minute reschedule, but what are these new tunes? I desperately wish we knew

New tunes... Nonetheless, the ticket prices were very expensive: $295 or $180 for those 35 and under :o Good luck to find any video or photo of this event.

that sucks we didn't know about it and no one could go.  Those people got to hear something really special and they didn't even know it.  that makes me mad!

That is, if someone has them and would actually take time to upload them.

That's true. I'm hoping there will be, but I wouldn't doubt that there aren't. People were looking for Regina, but then Vanessa filled in. Hopefully they are V fans!

I certainly hope there will be a video that would show up.
