Ouch. There are better folks out there for sure, but she has some good tunes, and I think of her as a gateway artist. I can see her getting some younger folks away from pop and into rock and roll. I will say that her band looked pretty bored at Devil's Night, but that's just a sign that they aren't true professionals. If you're with a band and aren't digging it, then quit. Don't get up onstage not trying to put on the best show you can. Also, disclaimer: I don't believe any music is inherently bad. I don't prefer a lot but if someone else digs it then it's existence is warranted. The only gray area for me is if the music overtly encourages violence or hatred.

I actually thought she was really good on Devil's Night. She was energetic and in tune, and the band was tight. I like OJ, even though she sounded way off on Conan. Lots of my favorite bands had great nights and not so great. (A quick listen to some of the vault releases of early Stripes confirm that!)

Whoa there, buddy! haha Even when the Stripes were off you could tell there was something there. Weaker artists are just boring when they're off, no feeling of electricity at all.

Agreed, I am not equating the Stripes and OJ. Hyperbole used for effect!

Good idea. I better make that my signature, since it applies to a large portion of my posts here!

She was into it for sure. I just got a vibe of boredom from the band, that they were less putting on a show and more going through the motions. They were competent enough to handle the tunes, but didn't seem "in it." I don't know a great way to explain.

The Coco appearance—one of the reasons I thought it was pretty poor was because her backing band looked so bored and uninterested in putting any personal spark into the performance.

And also: That song: :yawn:

I like it on the record, but Reminisce, Green Honeycreeper, and Haunt Me would have all made better choices for TV.

Ahh, yes!
New tour dates.
I had a good feeling she'd play Rough Trade in Brooklyn AND it's with The Dough Rollers.

Maybe that's part of the Scion STORE?
