I'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but:


In other Joanna News, some lucky souls will see her harp stylings at the Austin City Limits studios on 8/1 for an upcoming filming of that show. (Others announced for this season include The Decemberists, Jeff Bridges, Gillian Welch, Randy Newman, and some band Arcade Fire.)

ETA: I see that Kari mentioned this in the Random Joanna Stuff thread, but no date was given. It appears they've got her set for 8/1 now.

Thanks for posting those! :) I hope it airs here. My station seems to pick and choose which new episodes they show. Or I at least hope it will end up online.

Damn. I'm getting to Austin five days too late.

As much as I love HOoM and Good Intentions, I'm a bit disappointed they cut In California and especially Go Long. Not that I should be complaining at all, of course. I can't wait until it airs. Thanks for the update, Kari! And that's a lovely version of Bridges and Balloons.

I must make sure my DVR is set to record! I hate that they cut In California.

If you were gonna choose 30 minutes of Joanna Newsom, performed with the whole 'Ys Street Band' configuration, that would both satisfy you and sound good to a casual TV viewer, what songs would you choose?

The newer tone of her voice really lends some depth to Bridges and Balloons. I love that performance.

^ It's wonderful hearing her sing this with her "HOOM voice" if that makes sense. Makes the song all the more nostalgic and wistful, in my opinion. It's hard to believe that MEM is nearly 8 years old already.

Yeah all my favourite live performances are HOOM era - the most recent incarnations of Peach Plum Pear and Inflammatory Writ are fantastic. I really hope she releases a live CD at some point, or perhaps another 'YS Street Band' style EP...

Like someone else said, "totally stepping on Menju's toes here" but I didn't see this posted--- full video:

I think I converted my brother; he came in just as "Have One on Me" started and didn't move from the couch until the end of the hour. YAY!

I completely forgot that it was on. I just happened to check out PBS at the right time and saw Fleet Foxes, then remembered. She is such a mesmerizing and polished performer. I'm still trying to convert Scott, but I think it's going to take some time. I probably should have him listen to Ys first.

That was so lovely! I was especially amazed by the ending of "Good Intentions Paving Company" - the trombone solo (!), the drums, and the fantastic piano playing... Ah, bliss!

Eh, I always feel like I'm bagging on Joanna, but I didn't think her voice was so great in HOOM or Good Intentions. She was doing some weird lisp thing in HOOM that I've never noticed before. Her playing was in top form on all three songs, though. And she could definitely give Tori a few pointers on wearing a flag-based stage outfit. *ahem*

I have to agree. I've gotten to a point where I actually never want to see her live because she's always singing out of the sides of her mouth and squeaking. It looks and sounds painful.

Her records are wonderful, though, so I'm more than happy to just be a listener.

I thought "Have One On Me" was really nice, but I agree about "Good Intentions." Then again, I've always thought "Good Intentions" was quite weak live--the upbeat parts at least. It always sounds like she doesn't know which harmony to sing so just decides to do a little bit of all of them. Her faces during that song were adorable though.

The show I went to was amazing, and I've got several bootlegs from 2010 that are amazing. I just think she has off nights like any other performer. I would go see her again in a heartbeat.

I have to agree with Matty about Good Intentions... I don't think I've ever heard a live version that doesn't sound like a mess. I love the instrumental at the end, but the harmonies are all over the place. That's one of those songs that's way better on the album.

You really must see her. In concert she's the most charming, funny and charismatic of performers. And you really need to hear Sawdust and Diamonds, where the rapt audience seems as concentrated throughout as she is.

Stupid question, but will the cut songs be available at some point for viewing?

If nothing else, it'd be nice if they put them on their website. I'd really like to hear Go Long.

I taped the program last night on local PBS - yay! I haven't watched the entire show yet, but I catch her excellent performance of Good Intentions Paving Company. Prior, I had only seen one other live video of Joanna (I think it was Jools Holland). Anyway, I loved everything about GIPC: the voice, the piano, and her facial expressions. I think she's so cute, and I really hope I get to see her in concert someday.

Someone has posted Have One On Me here.

Unfortunately the sound quality is a bit off...but at least those of us who missed it can get an overall idea.

Gorgeous. [post28]
