Suzanne Vega

The concert was lovely. I was so pleased that Sarah P. thought of me when she ended up with an extra ticket! Especially since I had been going to be out of town this weekend, so had failed to obtain one on my own. I'm still bummed about having to miss the Sol Duc trip with the Silver Mist folks, but... I'm happy I got to see the show.

She's a tiny, almost elfin woman, Ms. Vega - the feyness is especially strong when her ears peek through her long straight hair. She seems strangely fragile, until she speaks. Then the force of her personality hits you.

She seems to suffer from controlled shyness - or perhaps it was merely first-night-back jitters. She mentioned that this was the first show after an extended holiday break. There were a few bobbles, but she took them in stride in good humor. Still, her banter seemed a trifle scripted; again, there are always a few kinks to work out on opening night, even if it isn't the absolute first time you've done the show.

I've always liked her music, ever since I was given a copy of her first album as a gift uncounted years ago. But I've never been enough of a fangirl to run out and buy all of her work. Pearson lent me a copy of the latest album, and based on last night I'll probably run out and buy it fairly soon, as well as working on filling in the back catalog.

I'm really glad I got to see her.
