Cat Power

Cat Power's latest SD performance was rather disappointing. Last year I stood five feet in front of her and was totally blown away despite the fact that she never looked up once from her guitar. However, this time she was not having a good night and kept stopping to fidgit with her guitar, the mic, or ask for a sound level change. She was making eye contact with the audience, but you see the panic and anxiety in her body language. Holly said that she will answer with a resounding "YES" the next time one of her autistic or obsessive compulsive kids asks if they can be a rock star when they grow up. Call me a fanboy, but Chan Marshall still has an amazing voice and is worth checking out no matter how awkward she is on stage.
