Cat Power - Sunday, February 6, @ The Music Box.
Chan Marshall stops time. She sits at a piano or lays her guitar across her lap, and whether it’s a noisy club overflowing with drunks or a coffee house full of lap-toppers, Chan Marshall draws all the attention in the room and makes the world stop spinning. As Cat Power, Marshall’s music seems to rise from nowhere, envelop the room, then vanish; listeners know they’ve been hit by something but they’re not sure what.
If you don't know much about Cat Power (aka Chan Marshall) by now, you should. Chan moved to NYC in 1992 and began playing shows and putting out records with; Runt records (Dear Sir, 1995), Smells Like records (Myra Lee, 1996) (Steve Shelly from Sonic Youth's label), then eventually Matador records (What Would The Community Think, 1996). Cat Power released "The Greatest" (Matador 2006) Cat Power now tours with "Dirty Delta Blues", a band made up of Judah Bauer (Jon Spencer Blues Explosion), Gregg Foreman (Delta 72), Erik Paparazzi (The Glass) and Jim White (Dirty Three).
This show seems to be the last stop for Chan in 2011, so catch her 'Fresh out the (Music) Box" if you can.
