I was there for this performance! Thanks, Kenny, for the awesome hook up!
Regina is such a goddess. She performed Small Town Moon, Ne Me Quitte Pas, All the Rowboats, Patron Saint, Ballad of a Politician, How, and The Party. Then, during the interview portion she waxed poetic and profound about songs and lyrics and language.
A few gems:
- comparing explaining the meanings of songs to unwrapping people’s presents for them - comparing her unrecorded songs to internees that are waiting to see the light of day - comparing her in-the-works songs to jello, which you can mess with for only so long before it’s set; ”Is that a regret?” asked the interviewer. ”Is jello ever a regret?” replied the goddess.
