Little Flavours of KT Tunstall

What a great feeling! Seeing people from Europe that is. Not only that, but to listen to some brilliant, ears-spoiling music and being lucky enough to get the best seats in the house, just a few meters above the stage, in a loge, THAT is what I call an orgazmic adventure in the making. Or a walk in the sparkly woods if you wish. Yes, it would have been so much easier to go on one of KT’s gigs when I was still in London, but you know me, I never do things the easy way if there’s a chance of… hmm… flying to a different continent? Ha! Obviously, it worked! Btw, it was a well good decision calling her the other day to get one of the press passes or whatever you call those annoying things hanging around your neck. Maybe next time, I should ask for a sticker or something. ๐Ÿ˜‰


Anyway, the stage scene was simple – a large flag with blue sky and pinkish-yellow clouds hanging as a background. Just a bit of light to set the mood. Quite boring from a photographer’s point of view. But the acoustic set was probably a tongue-roller for all the musicians, rowing down the same stream, with percussion, basses, KT’s guitars at the center of the stage (doooh), backing guitars next to her and synth, xylophone & other little noise makers on her very left. Miniature Disasters was the opening song, setting just the right atmosphere and giving everyone a taste of what more was there to come.

The sound was grrrrreat and clearly, those five people on stage really knew their business. Seeing the tricks she does with her loop pedal aka Wee Bastard as she affectionally calls it, was a blast! She even came up with a thank-you song for the crew, a Bee Gees cover of Stayin’ alive. She finished it: “Stayin’ aliiiiii-iiii-iii-iive… cuz without you, we’d be dead!” Maybe next time, there should be a waring: “Bring extra pants!” I wetted mine laughing at her jokes so much. She really is this sweetest, coolest, down-to-earth thing… she’s still, she’s still KT from the block! The only complain about the concert that I can think of (yes, it’s not that easy being pickish when things amaze you to the highest point and above) is that it was way too short. Come on, 3 hours and that’s it?! ๐Ÿ™‚

This was her last US tour gig and I think they’re off to Amsterdam next. There seems to be something with me, catching the last tour gigs all the time. Well, for one, I’m sure they are the best and there’s something about them, some kind of a good-fairy thing or whatever, that covers me with magic lucky dust, so each time something amazing can happen. And as KT said: “The last tour gig is always fun. It means you can drink more after!” ๐Ÿ™‚ At the end, she practically gave all the stuff, standing on the stage as a decoration, to the audience. Even chairs!! Can you imagine someone carrying a rocking-chair across the Times Square in the middle of the night? Well funny.

After the gig, she came out and talked to the people. What’s up with that?? No I’m-so-tired-get-me-a-cab-i-wanna-go-home attitude? It’s not like she’s in desperate need of getting or keeping fans – I think that kind of came by itself with selling over one million copies of her debut album in US alone and even twice that number in UK. Well, no one wants hey-i’m-mariah-carrey-hold-my-chewing-gum-while-i-sing attitude anyway. There’s only one KT! And we love her!
I know someone will be DELIGHTED to se this. You’re welcome. Again. ๐Ÿ˜›
P.S.: I don’t know through what kind of middle internet crisis this WordPress shit is going, but not only i’m posting and reposting the same blog all over again, trying to get the typing lined with the pictures, but also pictures seem to be losing more quality then usual. Or maybe it’s just my prebirthday crankiness? The first or the later – it’s annoying!!

Oh, and btw, check out the song list!! Those of you who actually know some of the songs might find it very funny. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Whooooooooooo…. what a great early birthday present! lovely picture with you and kt, you gals have the same smile, nose and hair colour! just woken up after zero hours of sleep. how is that even possible? it’s vegas, baby!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ hope you enjoyed my very sophisticated breathy doubleM2Kennedy version of a happy birthday song. now go enjoy yourself on this special day. shake that booty and show some loooooove, girl. stay beautiful. love ya very very much. hugs, kisses, cuddles and all the rest to spoil you on your birthday! Bex xxxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. YEHAAAAWW!! This was by far THE MOST AMAZING birthday ever!! No, wait, let me rephrase that… It was the most amazing birthday WEEK ever!! And the crazy shit’s still going on. Who needs Vegas. ๐Ÿ˜› I really got very badly spoilt right here in the middle of NY jungle. Got home at 6am, leaving again in an hour, so I’m on zero hours sleep myself. ๐Ÿ˜€ And it’s shaking and it’s loving… Thanks again for making me feel so special on my b-day and for being a bright shiny star on my precious part of the sky, where not many people are allowed to go to.

    Uuuu, and I got lilys! And they were stolen which makes it even better. Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Cestitam, Barbi!
    Pa saj si se skor z vsemi fotkala! WTF?!?! A different planet? ๐Ÿ˜€ Al pa si samo ti bolj agresivna, zdaj ko si ze tako dolgo v NY.
    Pa naj se kdo rece, da se v NY zelje ne izpolnjujejo. ๐Ÿ™‚

    No pa samo se to. A so v NY podocnjaki v modi? ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Juhu, Luka! Nope, not a different planet. A different product. Made in Scotland. Oziroma kjerkoli ze pac. In ne, nobene agresije. Mogoce kazem rit okoli zdaj, ko sem v NY, ampak po dusi in mentaliteti sem pa se vedno pacifist. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Ne bos verjel, ampak tale KT je taka super clovekinja, da ni besed, ki bi jo opisale. Se pogovarja s tabo in te objema kot da bi ga skupaj zurali v srednji soli. ๐Ÿ˜€ Dve leti, DVE LETI!! sem hotla na ta koncert, uvazala v Slo njene cd-je, ko se skoraj nihce ni vedel kdo je… In po tistem nasem Pink zmrzovanju in cakanju, niti nisem razmisljala o tem, da pa mogoce… In evo, spet, ko najmanj pricakujes, se zgodijo najlepse stvari. Dvomim pa da ma NY kaksno blazno povezavo z izpolnjevanjem zelja. Ce je bilo namenjeno, bi se isto zgodilo tudi v Spodnjem Dupleku. You just gotta believe. To je to.

    P.S.: Podocnjaki so posledica tega, da se tukaj dela. Non stop. Po 12 ur na dan. Najmanj. In ce hoces med tednom it nekam za svoj uzitek, je en zakelj pod ocmi minimalna cena, ki jo placas. Zato bom, ko pridem nazaj v Slo, pozabila na svoj pacifizem in vsakega, ki bo mel kaj za povedat cez naso Kuro (politika je v pizdi itak POVSOD!!), prav z veseljem nabrcala v rit. Pazi se! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Me je ze strah! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Sicer pa… Ja, ko najmanj pricakujes, ja… Hm, mislim, da to velja samo za dolocen procent ljudi. ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Mhm, sej prav!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Itak, da samo za dolocen procent ljudi. Aboridzine Down Under bas boli *vstavi po zelji in potrebi* za avtogram od vseh KT… in sem skor sigurna tut, da vsi ne poznajo Iris Mulej. ๐Ÿ˜›
