    String/Keys Incident (2019 US dates)

    from Drag City

    You know what haven't we had since 2016? Besides sanity and a general sense of well-being, that is? Joanna Newsom live in concert! This fall, Joanna will be playing for the first time in a long time, only (for now?) in New York, Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Chicago. These will be rare and intimate performances by Joanna alone: solo voice, harp and piano. And probably some t-shirts in the lobby. Get your tickets this Friday, April 5th at 10am local time! Or StubHub them later....

    Joanna Newsom Tour Dates:

    Sat. Sep. 7 - Philadelphia, PA @ Kimmel Center - Perelman
    Tue. Sep. 10 - New York, NY @ El Teatro at El Museo del Barrio
    Wed. Sep. 11 - New York, NY @ El Teatro at El Museo del Barrio
    Thu. Sep. 12 - New York, NY @ El Teatro at El Museo del Barrio
    Mon. Oct. 7 - Chicago, IL @ Thalia Hall
    Tue. Oct. 8 - Chicago, IL @ Thalia Hall
    Wed. Oct. 9 - Chicago, IL @ Thalia Hall
    Sun. Oct. 13 - Milwaukee, WI @ Irish Cultural and Heritage Center

    I want, I want, I want!

    Eeeeee! And I bet there are new songs. I’m almost tempted to plan a small vacation around any date for which I can snag tickets.

    I am too! Thanks for sharing @nathan zephyrus

    EDIT: I'm doing this. I was so mad at myself for not seeing her last tour (I've never seen her, and the arrangements and accompaniment were incredible from the performances I caught on YouTube). I just texted my partner and told him to pick Chicago, NY, or Philly. He doesn't like her at all so maybe day of if he decides to bail I'll have a seat available!

    Wow. Fifteen songs and several of them are really long. Isn’t that a pretty long set for Joanna?

    I wish I’d gotten tickets and travelled up there. *sigh*

    I was there last night She was very nervous to be back on stage after a few years, but the show was delightful. She went on a couple of minutes after 9, and was done a few minutes before 11.

    She mentioned not really touching the harp for about a year and a half after having her baby. She said she's been relearning how to play music over the past year.

    I'm going back tonight for the second Philly show, so we'll see if she mixes it up.

    I was just playing the Bottletree bootleg and Only Skin was playing when I read your message. It's really ambitious to do Only Skin on your second show after you told everyone you were just relearning to play. But I really hope there are boots because I want to hear these so bad.

    There are tons of pictures on Twitter of her meeting fans after the shows and it's giving me major 90s Tori vibes. Everyone looks so happy.

    Videos are starting to trickle in, too.

    Ugh, these videos are making me so sad that I didn’t buy tickets and go. She skipped two lines at the end of Only Skin but otherwise it’s the entire song.
