After a rest day, last one during this tour as there are only three dates left, LP arrived to Carrboro in North Carolina, where in the evening she performed at the Cat’s Cradle. With a capacity of 750 people, it was more of an intimate concert setting for LP fans, which most of us prefers. You know, nothing is better than this eye-to-eye connection and close proximity to an artist. Though I am thinking of trying out (some time in the future), looking at her concert from different, more distant & wider perspective as well. The sound is not always at its best when you are in a front row next to the speakers. But first they need to annouce some concerts that I will be able to actually attend. Today Portugal got lucky, yesterday Serbia. Concerts added in ‘dates’ section.
I will start today’s portion of my favourite comments by quoting Kat Cunning, great singer, dancer and performer, who along with Noah Kahan and The Years got to open for LP during this tour: “Just wanna say these houses are full when I walk out as an opener. These people are wide eyed and listening. That’s a testament to @iamlpofficial and the kind of people she draws. They’re ready to see dynamic women slay and they’re not going to miss a second of anything she recommends. They’re true music lovers who are straight, queer, old, young, and a slew of ethnicities, all of them there to be moved and I couldn’t be more honored to meet them as the support for you, @iamlpofficial. Here’s to you #iamlpofficial fans! Pleasure meeting you.”
Thank you Kat, though we haven’t met, I’ve got to know your music through LP and you’ve got a fan in me too. And now few words from my friend Lisa: “Tonight, I followed our LP to one of the south’s most progressive towns, Carrboro, NC. Although all her shows attract an interesting crowd, this was more diverse than usual, with all ages and colors well represented. LP was sporting a bandana which made her striking face slightly more visible than usual. And although the setlist did not diverge from the last few shows, her onstage antics were more colorful and energetic than usual (in my opinion), particularly during No Witness. And after the encore, she kindly remained onstage for a bit to sign quite a few t-shirts that had been thrown onstage.” Btw I lost track, which concert during this tour was that for you Lisa? Very happy you’ve got to experience all that!
I was also very happy to see Sara (with no ‘h’) with LP again. Here are her words, @sarakerstetter: “Another picture of me & LP!!!! What an awesome show! I mean, it was absolutely amazing! The crowd was intense, LP was spectacular and the band was electric! What a perfect night!” And few more quotes from others. @fabulezkicks: “Finally got to see LP live (only after 4 short years!) Well worth the wait and couldn’t have been with better company. ?❤️?.” Jules (@dandipoi): “LP put on one of the best shows I’ve ever been to… Which is not something I say lightly. So damn good.” Christina (@lilmissteener): “Absolutely adore @iamlpofficial So talented, funny, and sweet. So glad we were able to see another performance.” Erin (@itserinsweaty): “seeing LP was like a religious experience last night.”
And latest links. Lovely review (in french) of LP’s performance at MTelus can be found here. Another review with few pics, this one about Brooklyn Steel by Baeble Music is here. One more review from Brooklyn with some really interesting notes, is here. Quote: “I swear; if I threw LP’s voice into the universe, the stars would gather around it as if they had met a shining equal.” There is more, worth reading. Final review from Brooklyn (for now) and great gallery of pictures can be found here. Gallery of pictures & review of LP’s performance at 9:30 Club is here.
