Jolie Holland – Live @ the Southgate House

Jolie Holland doesnt just sing, she croons. Ms Holland has a style that attaching a tag as pedestrian as “singing” to it just doesnt do it justice. Hot on the heels of her excellent release, “Springtime Can Kill You”, Holland took the stage Monday night at The Southgate House to croon for us.

It was a fairly mesmerizing set too. The crowd was very intense and reserved throughout, even the most die hard of fans were only giddy from thier seats. Which, is a rarity at this venue. Jolie had all of us rather transfixed for her entire set too, even with a casual conversation mixed in to lighten the mood a bit. I get the feeling though, that this is the norm for a crooner like Holland. That having the audience in the palm of her hand is common as her voice likely is in her own home. If you get the chance to catch Ms Holland and her talented band, make it a point to do so.

That was a pretty rosy review of the show. While most the comments were correct, she seemed less than half-hearted about performing that night, starting and stopping several songs. So much more energy when the improv w/ the opening act, then it seemed like she got a call that her cat died in between the opening act and her act, and all her energy was gone.
When it became obvious the crowd wanted to hear songs off her (much better) 2nd album, she false started one, played another, and packed her bags.

Good, but disappointing.

Peter, my first time seeing her, so even a less than usual set from her brought about the rosy review. I must have blocked out the start/stops, but you are correct, there were quite a few.
