On Sunday I got to see the poet/musician, Bitch, play at a small house concert almost around the corner from me.
She was...indescribable. (And now watch me try to describe her anyway.)
Charming. Witty. Intelligent. Friendly. Charismatic. Interesting. And just SO MUCH FUN to watch. She played the keyboard, piano, violin, guitar, and ukulele during the show, as well as a strand of bells tied around her ankle. Her songs are poetry set to music; complex and thought-provoking, yet often also laugh-out-loud funny. She actually reminds me of Sondheim - you don't so much leave humming her tunes, but you feel simultaneously energized and exhausted from the emotional wringer you've just gone through. At least I did.
There aren't many decent videos of her on youtube, and anyway her incredible presence loses a lot in translation. But. Here's a thank you video she made for the people who helped get her next album off the ground.
You guys, I've done more cool stuff here in 6 months than in the entire 2.5 years I lived in Jersey.
