...superkalifragilisticexpealidocious!! ah vienna va...a FABULOUS show by char. she played Jammin' Java and i knew i wanted to come back here whenever she would play again because it's a nice venue, great food and atmosphere. char and her crew are amazing...driving from jacksonville to dc in one nite. good lord, but you'd never know if she was tired or not. char was amazing and the crowd was completely into it, like energetic and enthusiastic. it was mad fun! welcome to the northeast, lol! it was a wild show with some covers that blew (blue!) my mind. as ALWAYS, limits of our love -> all is full of love is an awesome, powerful start to the shows...a CONSTANT favorite now since she's been playing it at every show for this tour (except minneapolis). something about that loop of the intro. not the first time i've wanted to get up and dance with everyone in the room..and then she pulls out blue monday by new order...ahh. i love it! but what was a huge highlight was her cover of iron & wine's 'passing afternoon.' it was emotional and beautiful. and just to show she can go from manic/maniacally happy to wonderfully depressing in 3 seconds? she plays 'superkalafragilisticexpealodocious' (however you spell it, you know what it is) followed by 'darkest hour.' LOL! pretty perfect. in addition to the iron & wine cover another HUGE HUGE highlight was 'last day on earth' WITH a new loop that is AWESOME. i don't know how she does it. but request it because it sounds AWESOME! like thumping. a great show, a pretty long show! at the request of an informed fan, i'm going to have to try and remember to do start and end times...because char is playing longer and just rockin' audiences all over...vienna loved char, with a standing O and a tearfully appreciative char to end the evening. i'd go back here again...definitely.
