I met some friends at the 400 Bar in Minneapolis tonight and saw a singer called Caroline Smith. I didn’t know she was playing, I’ve never heard of her before, I just picked the 400 Bar tonight sort of randomly. Anyway, it was one of the best shows I’ve seen in years. Its been so long since I’ve had my breath taken away by a live band. It wasn’t a flashy afair, but the beauty of it more than made up for that.
I haven’t listened to the music on her myspace page yet, but I can definitely vouch for her live shows and her CD ($3, hand made, each one unique!). She plays every Wednesday night at the 400 Bar at 9 PM. I’ll be there.
