Amanda’s SD Concert Calendar 4/17-4/23

This past week I made it out to see Vanessa Carlton at the Casbah and I’m sooooo glad I did! I had never seen her live before and was unfamiliar with anything of hers beyond Be Not Nobody which was her debut album. However, she opened with A Thousand Miles to “get the elephant out of the room so the room can breathe.” Everything else of hers I was unfamiliar with but throughly enjoyed. She was full of lovely stories about how certain songs came to be, how she found her accompanist Sky, the fact that if you Google Edwardian Death Vest it won’t come up with any results, and life outside of the world of the label. So, yeah. That was a fun night.
