A painting of me


   5 March 2024, mid-morning

It was an emotional performance from Leslie Feist at Massey Hall last night. My cousin Mahi had an extra ticket to her show, and so I found myself listening to her perform songs from the start of her career through to this very moment. The show was beautiful. No opening act, just Feist. But really, Feist was her own opening act. Alone on a stage with an acoustic guitar. Chatting with the crowd, about her time during the pandemic, about the show. It all seemed very low-key, until it wasn’t. I don’t think I’ve been to a show where I want to say so little, because the act of talking about it may spoil the experience for someone else. There were moments of genuine surprise at this show. Plot twists! What a performer!

They were filming it all, so hopefully you’ll be able to watch it at home one day. Until then you can enjoy her encore, Love Who We Are Meant To. I was happy to have experienced it all in person.



Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
