One of the best shows i've ever seen, her voice is still out of this world, her depth of emotional response to other writers songs just perfect

Chuck Berry's daughter playing harmonica with him, it was like watching fucking amazing spontaneous interaction

My dog, Bertha lee, turning one year old

I just picked up the Congregation album from the postal office yesterday, sounds great. Come to Spain with Holly Golightly in 2009.
