Cat Power (8/10)
Start 20:45 / End 22:20
Berlin had to wait one year longer than expected to hear Cat Power play – the European dates of 2012 were cancelled – but this long wait was worth.
There is no support band to introduce the show. Instead, a Bob Dylan song comes out from the loudspeakers while Cat Power and her band enter the stage.
A spectacular incipit with Cherokee, starting soft and ending loud and full in a fantastic crescendo. During the whole concert Cat offers a continuous evolution of styles, mixing the electro nuances of Sun with the more minimal sounds of her previous works, and also the feelings alternate from melancholic to positive: the overall sensation is very good indeed. Most of the time, Cat dances while singing, giving the impression that she is really enjoying her show, as all of her public. The band is composed by talented musicians and the drummer is outstanding, especially when playing a kind of syncopated rhythm filled by a second snare.
Cat closes her gig with Ruin and everyone inside the full Huxley’s Neue Welt dances at the rhythm of her notes. Eventually, Cat Power throws some white flowers to her enthusiastic fans and says goodbye. Everyone is clapping loud and asking her to get back, but she doesn’t do it. Well, she is forgiven: her performance was great.

    Man, if you think the drummer was any good you obviously didn’t see Jim White (of the Dirty Three) playing for Cat Power. See for yourself:
