Anna Calvi Seattle Concert Review at Ink19.com
I don't review nearly as many concerts now as I did when I was a man-about town columnist in the Jet City, so it is good that my trained nose (or ear?) almost never steers me wrong in choosing a show these days. Case in point: Anna Calvi's June 1 show at the Crocodile, which I reviewed for Ink19.com. www.ink19.com/issues/june2011/eventReviews/annaCalvi.html
It was one of those truly thrilling situations where the performer actually tops the hype and expectations. Calvi, an up-and-coming Siren from England, is somebody special. Touted and supported by Brian Eno and Nick Cave, this gal is going places. And on a Wednesday night, she stopped in Belltown to blow everyone away before starting another round of UK/European engagements.
If my review seems too enthusiastic or embellished, it's not. Check her out on Youtube, and you'll be buying the album.
ps. When my webmaster is feeling better, a gallery of additional photos from the show will be posted.
