So tonight [livejournal.com profile] stacyinthecity and her husband Rey and I got dinner at Grilled Cheese NYC and then went to The Living Room, where we caught a performance of Norah Jones and The Little Willies, a side project she's working on, doing (classic) country music. They were originally formed as a Willie Nelson cover band, but at this point they do all kinds of country covers. The Living Room is a relatively small space - normally, seats maybe 50 or 60. We got seats right up front, since we actually knew who The Little Willies are. They didn't put Norah's name anywhere, it was a bit of a "secret" performance, but we had heard about it last week (when I had spotted Norah at The Living Room) and so made sure to go check it out.

Anyways. We were joined by [livejournal.com profile] nemesisbecoming and [livejournal.com profile] ozzdo, but both had to go home early, so only the original three of us managed to hold out all night. They went on around 12:15, and played until almost 2:30 in the morning - it was awesome. (There was a brief 15 minute rest period for the band, but otherwise it was essentially uninterrupted.)

I tried to make some phone posts:

But they obviously didn't come out too well. Damn treo and its lousy microphone and damn modern cellphones with their voice optimizations. Why don't they optimize for music? (Joke.)

Anyways, I got some pics of the performance, like this one:

But really, you just want to see the money shot, right? I don't know why, but I elected not to have my picture taken with her - but I did take Stacy and Rey's picture with her:

And there you go.

Oh, and before that, I went to the [livejournal.com profile] newyorkers meet, but I'm too tired to bother posting about that now.
