Cat Power touring with Memphis Rhythm Band

The smoky Ms. Chan (pronounced “Shawn”) Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power) is taking to the road in 2006 for a few shows. If you are lucky enough to live in one of these towns, you might check her out. Sometimes she is amazing live, other times I have heard a bit uneven. But I would take my chances, personally:

Feb 14 – NYC – Town Hall
Feb 18 – Boston – Berklee Performance Center
Feb 20 – Seattle – Moore Theatre
Feb 22- Los Angeles – Wilshire Ebell
Feb 23 – San Francisco- Palace of Fine Arts
Feb 24 – San Francisco- Palace of Fine Arts
Feb 26 – Chicago – The Vic
Mar 04 – London – The Barbican
Mar 08 – Paris – Grand Rex

DOWNLOAD: Here is the title track from her latest CD, The Greatest,” coming out January 24, 2006.

P.S. Am I the only one who didn’t know how hot she was? Just discovered this in trolling for the pic for the post.

  • Hey. I really meant it when I said this is a nice blog. You’re so passionate about the stuff you’re blogging about. I can never be like that. It’s great to see others be like that though. It instills me with a little more faith in humanity.

    I truly hated my other blog.

  • Jesus emailed me and it made me laugh out loud so I thought I’d share it in the form of a comment:

    “i checked out your blog and im excited that you think cat power is cute. i spent a little extra time on her.

    i love you,
    jesus christ”

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
