I got to see Sarah McLachlan this weekend at the Bridge School benefit. She was amazing as always. It was an acoustic set of just her on the piano or guitar. She performed (not in this order) Building a Mystery, Angel, Adia, U Want Me 2, Don’t Give Up on Us, World on Fire, Ice Cream, and Possession. I’m always impressed by the beauty of her voice and how she can manage to always sound great, even in venues with crappy acoustics. I thought it was pretty cool that she performed her major hits, so even casual fans (or anybody who has listened to mainstream radio in the past ten years) would be familiar with the music she played. Overall, it was an awesome performance and I feel so lucky to get to see her live (and literally in my backyard). I’m hoping she tours soon so that I can hear her again but this weekend’s performance will hold me over for a few more years.
Other than getting to see Sarah, it was pretty awesome to see Death Cab for Cutie and Jack Johnson at the same concert.
