Joanna Newsom: Brooklyn Academy of Music, New York NY

Jason Gross, Harp, March 2008

IF ANYTHING, folkie singer/harpist Joanna Newsom's recent live shows with strings answer the question of whether her new music (featuring 10-15 minute songs) is ambitious or just excessive. It's definitely the former, though you don't wanna get there a little late unless you wanna wait a quarter-hour to be seated between songs (like I did).
