Last year, I discovered this singer/songwriter, despite the fact that she’s been on the scene for 20+ years. And, I’ve been obsessed ever since. I hoped one day to see her in concert, so imagine my surprise when I found out that she was coming to The Palace Theatre in Greensburg! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, The Palace Theatre is one of my favorite venues to see a show.

And, what a great show it was! The band played for a Dave Grohl-worthy 2 hours and 15 minutes. She played a lot of stuff from her latest albums (I guess I’m going to have to buy her Led Zeppelin cover album now) and did a little acoustic set at the end of the show. Here’s the setlist. Much like the Foo Fighters, she does a different setlist for each show, so you never know what you’re going to get. Also, I wanted to mention that she’s the only singer I’ve heard that sounds better live than recorded. Amazing.

I went by myself and had a really great time, so I plan on doing it again in the future (I mean, I’ve gone to a bunch of shows in Johnstown solo, but this was the first one out of town). It’s not like you can talk at these things anyway. I did have a second ticket and asked one of my music-loving, dog-walking friends to go, but she was unable to attend. I tried selling it on StubHub, but it did not sell. As it turns out, there were a bunch of empty seats. Had I known that, I would have dropped the price. Oh well. I don’t really care, though, it was totally worth the money. And, I didn’t have to sit next to anyone.

Due to the length of the show, I got home late for a work night, so I’m a bit tired today, but it was totally worth it!
