I just saw Adam Green last night at Town Hall in NYC. Laura Marling opened. She played to a half empty hall, and had to deal with the noise of the doors opening every 2 seconds to let in more people. She didn’t play for more than 25 minutes. I really wished she would have played second as the second act, Tim Fite, was probably one of the worst things i had ever seen. The band consisted of him and his brother. He held a guitar for about 3 minutes and that was the last of the live instruments. All of their music was pre-recorded and shown on a video screen, while they sang along. Complete waste of time. Adam Green was really goofy and fun. He put on a pretty good show. I’m just upset that Laura didn’t get a longer set. She is a million times better than Tim Fite and deserved better than playing to a half empty hall.
So here’s to you Laura Marling! I hope you come back soon and play your own show at a proper venue.
Oh and Ashley Olsen was sitting 5 seats away from me!
