I didn't make much noise about this show before it happened, mostly because anything after the show at her home venue in Buffalo, NY is a let down. Not really, but you know… I've seen Ani plenty, and besides, this was a sold-out show. This also got me thinking, when was the last time she played Cleveland?? Eh, who cares, I think Kent is the place for her anyway.
Opening was Katie Herzig. After a great performance at Missy Higgins, I was really excited to see her again. This time she was played a much more stripped down and acoustic set. Both ways, I found her warm and charming. I might even be smitten.
Unfortunately, photography also wasn't an option. I did sneak this *terrible* iPhone shot, and grabbed some bad video - but I was excited to see what my new iPhone 5 could do. We were too far away for any good visual, but the audio on the videos is pretty good actually!
I didn't mean to catch only the old-school favorites, but I only bothered recording at the end. Catch the other one over on my YouTube channel. Both Hands was probably my first favorite song by Ani.
