[insert song lyrics here]

They were renovating the benches at Davis last week, so I hadn't seen Carrie [lack of performance space], but via internet stalking I knew she was performing at "Grrl Rush" at All Asia tonight.  I went, despite the name.

I'm compulsively early, plus I wanted to allow time for getting lost etc.  I actually went the correct direction from Central Square T Station first try.  Apparently one of the earlier acts had canceled, so they had her start early -- which she was less than thrilled by (esp. b/c they asked her to do a short set).

I'm a bad fangirl and despite having listened to cdbaby clips did not have any requests.  Someone else requested "Goodnight, Amelia," though, which once I heard I realized totally would have been one of my requests if I'd been thinking, 'cause that's the song I've been kind of obsessed with recently.  [And yes, she did ask me directly if I had any requests.  She is really good with faces, so she remembered me.]

She also played a new song I liked a lot ("I Do") and a cover of and Iron and Wine song ("Naked as We Came"; points for the choice of source, though admittedly I only know two of their songs).

Between errands and not being sure what I wanted to eat, I only had a light dinner, so halfway through my Zombie I could feel the alcohol really hitting my brain.  It didn't too visibly impair my motor ability, though (and was supah-yummy).

I chatted with her a bit afterward.  Apparently she works at BSC and thinks she knows OriginalRoomie.  I bought a CD and she didn't have sufficient change.  During our conversation, she saw the proprietor (or whomever) and asked if they'd taken cover charges, which they hadn't, so I should have said she could keep the extra $5 since I hadn't paid a cover charge for the show.  Clearly I'm just going to let her keep the extra change.

Club Passim (Veggie Planet) is doing a Leonard Cohen tribute Nov. 27 that she may or may not be performing at.  (Hey mom, according to their calendar, Bob Franke's performing there next Friday at 8pm.)
