So about two weeks ago, my friend Brittany found out that Norah Jones was going to be giving a free concert at the Amoeba in LA and we both shat ourselves. So yesterday was the aforementioned concert and it was freakin’ sweet. She played a small set for about 45 minutes or so and then had a signing afterwards. I was so excited to get to see her up close and to meet her. Sort of. When the time came, I was so star struck that I just clammed up and probably looked like a douche. I gave her my CD and she said, “Lewis. I’ve always liked that name.” I said, “Thanks” and then shut up and turned beet red. I couldn’t think of one witty thing to say. I was about to say, “Keep up the good work” but decided against it because I would sound like a douche.
Moral of the story: I’ve lost my balls.
She sounds AMAZING live. Even better than on the record which means that they did not doctor anything on her albums. She sure can sing and her band is amazing too. Her back up singer sure can whistle. She’s so purdy… I especially enjoyed her nose ring. It was small and very tasteful.
