More musical goodness

We did manage to haul ourselves to the Tractor last night, and we're glad we did. We went mainly to hear Datri Bean. She's a friend of friends, and we tried to go to her cd release show at Conor Byrne a couple of weeks ago, but it was sold out. So, we were seeing (and hearing) her for the first time last night. Datri writes funny, sexy, bluesy songs about life, love, and food, and performs them with a grin. We loved her, and promptly invited her over to dinner.

The other band, Po' Girl, was lagniappe. We knew that one of the members was in the Be Good Tanyas, so we assumed we'd like them. And, sure enough, they were great. It was the last show of their tour, and they were charming and inexhaustible. They play a wild assortment of old timey-bluegrass-jazz-cajun-whatever, with gorgeous harmonies. I think Trent is a little in love with the clarinetist with the dreadlocks, but I understand.

I've done no knitting to speak of. I have to run some errands and try to get caught up on work today. Tonight we're going to see Beth Orton at the Showbox. Can we get lucky 3 times in a row with shows?
