Nikka Costa. You remember her. She's like Joss Stone, only good.
This woman works for it on stage. She's very good on record, but it's in a live setting where she truly shines.

Her backing band is legit. Funkiest white girl around. Saw her a couple of times when "Everybody's Got Their Something" came out and was quite impressed. Sold merch for her during her show @ the Usual in San Jose. There was a meet and greet after the show and there was a number of creepy guys coming up to us and giving her flowers and stuff.

Well can you blame those poor creeps? I'm sure some of them would gladly swap places with her microphone stand. You practically feel like you've made it to second base with this woman by the time her set's done.

She has played the El Rey twice this year already.

Nikka's playing The Roxy this Thursday. Looking forward to it. Haven't seen her live in a few years now.

I know the thread title's not accurate, but I'm not starting a new Nikka Costa thread. She's playing the Luckman Fine Arts Complex and CSULA on May 12 at 8pm. Details and tickets here (http://www.luckmanarts.org/events/nikka-costa.html). Not the right kind of venue for her, though. You need to see this woman in a packed to the rafters club, not a formal theatre with seats.
