Lady Sovereign at the 9:30 Club

Last night, went down to the 9:30 Club to see UK's Lady Sovereign play.
She was tiny! Also, she looked like she was twelve. It was really fun seeing her live though. Clearly, she enjoys the booze, but her rapping was still pretty damn good.
The openers were some crap dance punk wannabes Young Love. The lead singer was a pretty boy who clearly only held his guitar to look cool, not to contribute any music worth a poo. Awful, but considering the music business, and the response of the kids at the show, they're gonna be huge. Sucked.
Lady Sovereign was messing around on the balcony before her set, pouring drinks onto her crew while they were doing the changeover. Onstage, she has a lot of charisma for such a tiny gal. She did a fun cover of the Sex Pistols' "Pretty Vacant", and she got someone dressed as a banana from the audience onstage and karate kicked him. She also dissed on Bush. Oddly enough, the only Bush supporters in the audience were Young Love fans.

We saw lady sov last spring with the streets. The streets were lame with a capital suck. Lady sov was super fun. She is gonna be at the Crystal ballroom in november.

For some reason, I feel like my entire life can be summed up by the expression on the banana's face. Strange, considering I want to do to the banana precisely what Lady Sovereign is doing.

It came to me yesterday at work: I was born to be Seraph from the Matrix movies. Its coming together.
