The show was sold out, but it did not have that anxious vibe that most sold out shows have. I didn’t feel like there were expectations for Lianne to perform the “best show of her career.” It was her first NYC performance, but no one would have known that.
She calmly walked on stage; dressed in shorts, heels, and a ruffled up blouse. She wrapped the guitar around her and just sang. When she did a cover of Jill Scott’s ” He Loves Me,” the crowd out sang her. It was actually a good thing. I think that crowd would have out sung Jill Scott with that karaoke favorite.
By the end of the show I felt like I was leaving a neo-soul love fest. Maybe it was just me, but all I wanted to do was hug everyone in the room. It was a nice way to spend a Tuesday night.
Love, Peace, and Nappyness,
