Eternal gratitude and props to e_dan who saw fit to purchase Ember Swift tickets for tonight’s gig at The Corner.
The day at High Vibes was marred by shocking weather (freezing winds and pouring rain) and an importune interruption in the form of magazine work, but the evening was divine, Ember and Lyndell’s voices angelic again and yet political and powerful, exactly the kind of world I want to live in, where my revolution is one I can definitely dance to. The final instrumental, Phoebe’s Song for peace, was, as always, just incredible. Lyndell’s violin and bowed guitar is mind-blowing. I’m devastated that they won’t be at Woodford and don’t think they’ll be back till 2008, if only because Doug won’t get to see them.
I gave Ember our left-over Montréal metro tickets which she thought was deeply amusing and fabulous. I’m very glad they’re going to good use. It’s so funny that I just missed these guys in Canada, after so many years of telling them I’d see them soon over there.
Home to an e-mail from someone about Evaldas, the gorgeous Lithuanian I met at the forest festival in 2003 . Intriguing… will respond when I’ve thought more about that one. Hi though, if you’re reading, Julija.
