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
operator
nothing where something used to be
blue pool
love is an art
river
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.

Thanks for the review Smiley And congrats on it being your last semester of university!

Kind of crazy that it was so cold that she needed gloves! Not cool on the venue's part.

I was surprised when she didn't perform it in Toronto, because I was really looking forward to it! I guess that she's performing Love Is An Art instead?

she tweeted a lot about this venue and how badly it treats their artists.  she posted pics of their dressing room -- disgusting and flea infested, she said.
