Another day toiling away at City Winery leads to pounding drinks at Beauty Bar and going to a show at Webster Hall to see Marina and the Diamonds. Lets not forget the opener, Gordon Voidwell. This man is fun, you see it in the way he sings and moves. He is a dance party and when he sings white friends, I think I want him to be my black friend.
I have a confession to make and I did not realize I had one until after Marina and the Diamonds performance, when I was showing my roommate her music. I had heard her song Robot in the winter and I thought it was ok but nothing special. When she sang Robot at the show everyone started passionately singing along trying to cleanse themselves of their own conformity. I did like Robot better live. She added so much more feeling behind every word, I felt it reverberating through me and all around me.
A few songs in, she tells us she is sorry for being a little slow tonight, that last night she was on (I did not notice). Marina continues on to say she is a super bitch, that she has really big goals. Thats the answer to her edge. She wants it so bad and you feel it. I like that, a lot. It might also come from her new hair cut which by the way is mucho hotter than her long flowing hair. I will do five hale marries and lets say I am forgiven for my sin.
