She just announced a show at a kickass small venue in my suburb, stoked! Can't wait to see her again.

You can listen to Darkside's remix of "Digital Witness: here. No surprise it rules.

I'm pretty sure not going to see her this past week will be one of my biggest regrets for 2014.

Same here. I've already heard way too much good about the show here a couple days ago. Oh well, being a responsible adult required sacrifices.

 
To Baal. LOL

Saw her last night. It bears repeating just how brilliant a guitarist she is. There was a Devo-ish quality to the stage design and wardrobe, which was quite a departure from the sparseness of the last time I saw her.

Anyway, the tracks from S/T came across well, but not nearly as well as the Strange Mercy songs, which all had tremendous force to them. Cheerleader for example is less a pop-leaning song now than some kind of doomsday march. I also got to see Strange Mercy (the song) in a stripped-down take, which was probably the highlight of the show for me.

I saw Annie open for Arcade Fire in 2007, and really enjoyed her set, but haven't paid much attention to her since. I know, I know. My loss.

Anyway, I recently bought tickets to see her when she comes to town in July, so I decided to Cobbler it, and listened to her latest. I love it. It's all I've been listening to these last few days.

I actually didn't think it was all that good. She did the same two songs on Colbert and it sounded a lot better. But that's SNL acoustics for you.

I only heard Birth in Reverse, and thought it sounded terrible.
