  1. Radio City Music Hall on October 14, 2009

    Does anyone have an extra ticket to this?
  2. Regina's Best Lines

    As a New Yorker, I'm partial to the image of winter that Reg paints in Ne Me Quitte Pas: Down in Bronxy Bronx the kids go sledding Down snow covered slopes and frozen noses, frozen toes And the frozen city starts to glow And yes they know it will pass And yes they know New York will thaw But if you're a friend of any sort Then play along and catch a cold
  3. Orpheum Theatre Sep 22 2009 Face Value! $44

    I too might not be able to use 2 tickets to this show (possibly 4). They are in row JJ, so good seats. Can anyone use them?
  4. Barnes & Noble (NYC), August 18, 2009

    Lol, I'm having my younger brother get there maybe around noon tomorrow to save us a spot. Hope that's early enough. Told him to just pick something up from the book shelves to read. =)
  5. Would you pay to get Regina to do a show for us?

    Sign me up. Although how about we hire her to do magic tricks for us or something?
  6. Far "Purists vs Non-Purists"

    I don't know how telling this is, but I pretty much stopped listening to Far a couple of weeks ago and have just been listening to the Beacon Theatre concert to get my fill of the new songs. Musiclover I understand the Beatles reference, being a huge Beatles fan myself, but could you (or anyone versed in music production) explain to me what Regina is doing in this latest album that is groundbreaking? Or is the difference simply that she is trying new instrumentation? As far as I can tell all the background drum loops and whatever else has been added isn't anything new. Please someone enlighten me.
  7. Regina faking?

    Believe me guys, I wouldn't have started this thread if I didn't feel the same way. I've had several "discussions" (*cough* arguments) with my friend about this already and maybe she's just cynical, I have no idea.
  8. Regina faking?

    quote: Originally posted by Fran: Sorry, I got the distinct feeling she was faking at the last concert I went to. But it's not a bad thing: it shows she's human. Isn't that what we love about Regina? I think she can be so much in her own world, that if she didn't make any mistakes she could just play an entire set without saying anything to the audience. I think she can get overwhelmed by audiences. I'm not sure I understand what you're saying. You're saying it's human to fake things or to make mistakes? My thinking is that Regina faking this goes against everything we know about her, about her being a genuine person... so I'm not sure I agree that her faking a mistake falls in line with what we love about her.
  9. Regina faking?

    Ok, this really pisses me off. A friend of mine who is a recent Regina fan (Beacon was her first concert) keeps suggesting that Regina's screw ups on live performances are staged. She thinks it's not a big deal because it gets audience participation. Does anyone else out there suspect this? I for one couldn't even imagine this being true. Granted I don't know her personally, but just knowing how overwhelmed she gets during live performances, having to remember so many songs (changing set lists), and being easily distracted can all contribute to her screwing up frequently. It's funny and endearing when she messes up, and maybe I just don't want to believe that it's not real.

  11. Serpentine Sessions, Hyde Park, LDN, June 29 2009

    Haha, thanks. What exactly would the NY flag look like? Yeah I made it to Beacon, which is why I don't feel as bad about missing this concert... even though catching her in Hyde Park would have been amazing... that and visiting London again.
  12. Review of "Far"

    Read the review... it's not that bad. Says a lot of good things about her, just not so much with this last album. The last paragraph pretty much sums it up for me though. "“Quirky” is a lazy label, but it’s usually meant as compliment, and Spektor is truly one of the most unique artists to emerge over the past decade. She owes it to herself and her audience to preserve that individualism at all costs, to shrug off the hired hands and go at it alone, blaze her own crooked trail, dig her own grave and burst out of it again."
  13. Serpentine Sessions, Hyde Park, LDN, June 29 2009

    So disappointed that I had to send my tickets to my cousin in London since I can't go. Her and her friends aren't familiar with Regina, so maybe this concert will create some new fans.
  14. Which is the better album?

    1. Seeing her live 2. Live recordings 3. Soviet Kitsch 4. Songs 5. Begin To Hope 6. Far 7. 11:11
  15. "Far" Regina's Next Album :D

    I'm not sure if this has been discussed before, but has anyone asked Regina why the pacing of her vocals has been slowed down a bit on this album?
