Follow uP: Diane Birch LIVE!

19 08 2009

Tonight my friend Scott and I walked over to Le Poisson Rouge on Bleecker Street to see Diane Birch play live in an intimate little venue.

Despite a horrendous opening band from Vancouver called Hard Drugs (believe me, hard drugs would have kicked the ass of this garbage trio; or at least numbed my senses) Diane is even more amazing in person than on her already impressive album, “Bible Belt.” In addition to playing all her best songs from that cd, she also closed with the Tom Petty crowd pleaser “You don’t know how it feels.” The show was worth every cent of the $15 admission and shoddy waitress service.

If you haven’t already, check this woman out! She is the most exciting female singer I’ve heard in years.
