Love most of Regina's songs but her voice can get a little weird, almost as if she's about to vomit all over the mic. Still debating on seeing her or fighting my way through the crowd to see Bjork. Yes, I'm only going one day.

As much as I love Regina because she performs so well live (her control over the keys and her voice is so precise)... Bjork is my priority, by far my priority.

Just wondering, how do you know they're playing at the same, or around the same, time?

Your debate can be settled easily. Which day are you going? According to the poster, Bjork is on Friday and Regina is on Saturday.

they're not playing the same day. regina will not be closing a stage, she'll probably play at a similar time to the time imogen heap played last year.

Although I have nothing against Regina Spektor, Bjork is to Spektor as Fat Burger is to McDonalds. Bjork just doesn't compare.

Saw Spector in Philly. One of the most BORING events I have ever been to in my life!!!! The little pixie thing only goes so far. Be warned! She opened for the Kings of Leon and The Strokes.....BRUTAL!!!!

That was like five years ago, no? Her first tour? I think she's had time to hone her act and also has an entire album of new material, I wouldn't write her off.

I think you can say the same thing to Bjork.

I'm watching both of them.

Regina is kind of like Cat Power in that her shows can be hit or miss. Sometimes, when she's "on" it's really amazing and you're in store for a moving, almost distressingly personal show. Other times, it falls completely flat. Part of this might be centered around how much her vocal "tics" take over her singing on any given night.

You will also be approximately 1000X farther away should you choose Bjork. That matters for some, matters not at all for others.

Ah, yes. There are many Bjork fans here. Good times good times. I think I have made my decision (sp?). Bjork it is.

I can't believe I missed Imogen Heap last year. What the hell was I thinking....

If you're only going for ONE day then I would say go see Bjork. Its been several years since she's been to the States and while she's always welcome, who knows when she'll be back again.
Don't kick yourself for having missed out, go see Bjork!!
