review by Jules :)
well. god, L.A. you are quite the state with surprises. 'every time it rains' should have made an appearance! it was pouring all day...but what a great show at the hotel cafe. char mar was *on* and she sounded great. it was a great surprise to hear the new song! 'last song'...really beautiful. and then following that with 'weird goodbye' packed an emotional punch. 'stromata' (dirty river version!) continues to kick ass...the vocals on it are insane. it once again made me think that i may like this version better. me! a synth/production lover. haha. but char on piano...thats the way i remember her, how i got into her music. so it was just a big reminder of why i love her and her music. anyway. it was a great show...the meet and greet was such a great opportunity to reconnect with the west coast char mar peeps. such a great bunch that comes out for char...thanks jon, cristina, jaimie, jess, christina (merch!), briel, jessica l., jim, sam, abraham, randy and heidi from iowa, joy, probably missing some folks. thanks for making it a great evening. of course, thanks to char for these shows...whetting our appetites for more! i have to say....i love LA. thanks all.
