You can find a recording on respektonline.com from the Beacon Theatre. Aaron gave me one of his recording devices to use so I could record from a better vantage point. I failed miserably - sorry! Frowner

Luckily though, Aaron did get a recording if I'm not mistaken.

I love you guys. Thanks to lots of different stixers I got a great seat, got into the after party, got to hang out with great people, see Reg and get a picture.

Last night's performance was pretty much flawless, I was so proud of Regina and blown away once again at how amazing her voice always is live. Love You're a Whore was my favorite performance of the night. I had to jump up and down for that one lol.

Does anyone happen to have a recording of the show? I went to the show last night and it was totally AMAZING, but I can't find any sort of recording for "Holocaust", so I was wondering if anyone would be able to share one with me, particularly the one from last night.

The name of the song is "Ink Stains"...

Well I may as well go ahead and put in my two cents. I grew up listening to and

seeing Genesis, Yes, and Jethro Tull. You follow artists, and you get so close

to the art, you have your critical moments and ideas. I heard her driving down

the west side about 6 years ago, on WFUV, and had to grab a pen, a common occurance

in my life. It was the Hotel Song - I at first thought it was some kind of high-tech

accopella thing, with those harmonies at the beginning. Bought Begin to Hope,

and it was downhill after that. Of all of the music I've listened to forever,

since the early 60s, I don't think I ever pounded anything into my head

the way I did Songs, Mary Ann, Soviet Kitsch, Begin to Hope, and now this album.

I've worn the CDs out at times and bought new ones. I like things loud, usually.

I'm a lifelong musician with a pretty high voice, and probably perfect pitch,

so I sing and I sing and I sing things I like. So anyway, last night was about the most

magical event I've ever witnessed. But it's funny, when you're such a huge fan

of something, you are so hypercritical of it, you actually are allowed to have

your pros and cons list. So I like my bass and guitar. I'd seen some of her live

stuff with this new ensemble, yes of course it's freaking fantastic, but you know,

just a little....like pulling teeth, where's the VOLUME, girl! The Fidelity.

I mean, you could TALK in there last night during songs. What's this, a lounge?

I mean, but it's freaking perfect, you know? It's just so utterly human.

Anyway, you also know which songs are coming sometimes, and you have your

opinions about which songs should be played. And you follow the band's

personality year after year, and the artists ideas and ideals. So, let me

get to the point here (I'm so much like my mother, on and on) I just have

been thinking for the past few weeks, God, I basically know what's coming,

I just wish she'd fucking go in there and do her thing, I mean it's her damn

thing of course, but if she could just freakin play Love You're a Whore,

I mean it's Radio City, fuck with everyones head, but I knew that was

just my fantasy, I knew, I knew, I knew.....

Yeah, I knew. Who knew? I almost fell out of my seat when she

ran out there at the end and those string players waxed that

tune like there was no tomorrow. She does what she wants, and thank the wonders

of the world that she does. I think I sang most of it with her,

I tried not to sing much all night, people near me didn't pay

to hear me, but you gotta sing some at any concert, that's the whole point.

Ah me. The girl is a living legend. On a side note, I noticed

shortly before the show, the PA played The Hunter by Bjork

followed by One Way or Another by Blondie, which made me snicker

with glee, cause it's always fun to hear what artists care to hear

before their concerts.

Great post! And, I have to say it, Genesis, Yes, Jethro Tull are my dad's ultimate favorite bands, and he transmitted that to me so I absolutely worship those guys (right now I'm obsessed with a Steve Hackett cd). I went to a Peter Gabriel concert a few months ago and I never recovered haha, it blew my mind to a whole new level; genius music.

I guess what I'm trying to say is AWESOME taste!! Big Grin And welcome to the Stix!

I saw Peter Gabriel three times, all those years ago. After he left

us Genesis fans all devestated. Was like McCartney breaking up

The Beatles. I remember laying on my parents bed, in tears,

I was ten, thinking if I could only talk to Paul!

What Hackett album?

^ Ooohh! If only I'd been alive to see a Beatles concert... And I also wish I could see The Who live, but that won't happen anytime soon, or ever haha.

Three times!! Wow! He's just brilliant! It's an old album, I just discovered it looking through my dad's stuff, it's called Please Don't Touch
