Missing the Concert

I heard one of this woman’s songs week-before-last, immediately bought the album, listened to it during lunch at work the next day, and instantly went to a coworker’s desk to announce I’d found her new favorite thing. And now I give her to you. Her name is Shara Worden, but she goes by My Brightest Diamond.

Tomorrow night, she’ll be at 7th St. Entry, First Avenue’s adorable little brother venue, but I cannot attend. This makes me sad. Support her when she comes to your town, that she may return to mine.

Oh! She was touring with Sufjan Stevens! The more experimental dissonant stuff did not move me, but when she really turned up the rock it was awesome. She struck me as having an unusually, almost distractingly, polished stage presence and a lovely voice sometimes misused. With Sufjan she was fabulous.
