Otherwise Engaged: Beth Orton & Emmy The Great

It is an unfortunate reality for the serious concertgoer that on occasion, there will be more than one show on any given night that you really, really, REALLY wanna go to. Since the vast majority of us don't own a time machine, nor have the ability to either clone ourselves or split ourselves in half (or thirds or quarters depending on the night in question), this tends to present a problem. Difficult decisions are made based on a variety of variables (perhaps some of you even make lists of pros and cons), and ultimately, a show is chosen. But those other shows are still gonna be killer, and I'd like to give a little face time to the shows that, while I can't go myself, are still highly recommended.

For those amongst you who tend to swoon over sultry, ethereal, dream-weaving lady voices, you may with to venture out into the steam tonight and head to the U Street Music Hall. You see, the combined vocal talents of Beth Orton and Emmy The Great will be at the U Hall this evening, and to have both of those beautiful voices in one place is a very special, cosmic-alignment kind of event. I've seen Ms. Orton before, and can vouch for her impeccable performance chops, and I have no doubt both sets from these Brit songstresses will be gems. Go see.
