Well, it's a bit too late to do a full review of the Feist show this past Sunday at the Flynn, but I will say that it was definitely in the top ten live shows I've ever seen. Feist is definitely at a career peak, and she's performing her hit songs beautifully and passionately. A killer backing band, tight arrangements that still leave room for improvisational touches and a great & friendly stage presence made for a wonderful evening--thank you Leslie!

A few of my favorite moments from the show--

  • Being part of the Feist "grade school chorus"
  • The beautiful lighting effects, especially the junior-high dance disco ball effect
  • The on-stage banter, especially the lame jokes ("Beef Burlington"; "guitarsenal")
  • Feist inviting the kid who left a tambourine backstage for her to come on stage and play it.
  • The huge attack-hug the kid gave her when he made it onstage, and the split-second look of terror in Feist's eyes when she thought he was attacking her.
  • The huge mass of dancing fans onstage who took up Feist's offer to come up during the encore.

Did you go to the show? What did you think? What were your favorite moments?
