Fri 14 Aug – Tracy Chapman, Gaby Moreno
I have been a fan of Tracy since the late 80's. I am not sure if I heard Fast Car or Talkin' 'bout Revolution first, but they are both incredible songs which I have listened to innumerable times.
When we arrived at the Pabst, we weren't positive if there was an opener. Once we got there, we found out that Gaby Moreno
was playing. Neither of us had heard of her before, and were delighted with her performance.
First, I must say that Tracy Chapman
still looks great, and sounds even better. Her set really spanned her entire career, from her early hits to last years album, and even covers. Tracy played a variety of guitars, an electric banjo, and even a box, mixing things up after pretty much every song. It was really a fantastic set.
My one negative comment about the night was that the crowd was weirdly rowdy. It was an older crowd (in fact older than I thought it would be). But there was a lot of weird yelling at the stage and cat calling.
