Anyone else having trouble embedding videos? When I go to post there is no youtube embed button : (
I think this is my favorite track on Visions. I feel like this is possibly her most focused effort on the album. LOVE it. <3
I saw her set at Treasure Island. She was the best set of the weekend. Can't wait!
Her first set on the Jamaica cruise was really going off, but I was too fucking exhausted and dehydrated to get into the crowd so I just sat in the back drinking water. A bit pointless to watch anything after Pulp, anyway. So I was there for the second set to make up for it, and up front. Unfortunately, that wasn't nearly as intense. And a lot shorter. She performed seated next to a trash can in case she had to puke. So hopefully round 3, then?

Why do you think she's gunna bomb?
Honestly can't wait to see her set. I'm hoping to hear Nightmusic, live. Such an interesting song for so many reasons. Should be a trip.
She played both Crystal Ball and Nightmusic on the first night of the first SS Coachella cruise (Bahamas). She played a pretty healthy setlist and really seemed to be enjoying herself on stage. And her dancers were fun, too. Heard her other shows on the cruises (she did four total) weren't as energetic. So, guess she can be hit or miss. Glad I saw the home run.
caught her at the el rey last year. she sounded really good and it was a fun high energy show. nothing really mind blowing but nowhere near bad. she'll be excited. it will be fun

crowd also matters a lot. her show in montreal was batshit insane--almost felt like being at a rave--but then when i saw her in chicago a couple months later it was just a bunch of skinny 'grimish' chicks and hipster dudes who were too chickenshit to actually have fun.
so yeah, i guess what im trying to say is im still super stoked to see her at coachella. im sure she's got her schtick figured out by now.
