Cat Power touring with Memphis Rhythm Band

The smoky Ms. Chan (pronounced "Shawn") Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power) is taking to the road in 2006 for a few shows. If you are lucky enough to live in one of these towns, you might check her out. Sometimes she is amazing live, other times I have heard a bit uneven. But I would take my chances, personally:

Feb 14 - NYC - Town Hall
Feb 18 - Boston - Berklee Performance Center
Feb 20 - Seattle - Moore Theatre
Feb 22- Los Angeles - Wilshire Ebell
Feb 23 - San Francisco- Palace of Fine Arts
Feb 24 - San Francisco- Palace of Fine Arts
Feb 26 - Chicago - The Vic
Mar 04 - London - The Barbican
Mar 08 - Paris - Grand Rex

DOWNLOAD: Here is the title track from her latest CD, "The Greatest," coming out January 24, 2006.

P.S. Am I the only one who didn't know how hot she was? Just discovered this in trolling for the pic for the post.

Hey. I really meant it when I said this is a nice blog. You're so passionate about the stuff you're blogging about. I can never be like that. It's great to see others be like that though. It instills me with a little more faith in humanity.

I truly hated my other blog.

Jesus emailed me and it made me laugh out loud so I thought I'd share it in the form of a comment:

"i checked out your blog and im excited that you think cat power is cute. i spent a little extra time on her.

jesus christ"
