Cat Power and the Dirty Delta Blues:
Live at the Granada
Cat Power and her Dirty Delta Blues band blessed Dallas with a nearly 3-hour long marathon set last night at the Granada Theater. With her rad French bulldog Mona watching from backstage, Chan was typically affable and sweet, and seemed to be having a lovely time interacting with the sold-out crowd, and the band was spot on accompanying the chanteuse as they ran through two sets worth of indelibly soulful covers. As it happens, the show was being recorded, so we were treated to a full second set which featured multiple takes on a number of the first set's songs, including their incredible cover of Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' "Tracks of My Tears," and Mona's favorite, "Silver Stallions." The band might have thought otherwise, but this was a truly remarkable, unforgettable show. In a rare instance, an adoring (and lucky) audience was generously allowed to witness a special band work through new material/covers as if we were right there in their living room.
