PJ Harvey & John Parish, Beacon Theatre 6/9/09

I’ve been a PJ Harvey fan for years, but never got around to seeing her until tonight. Only songs from her two albums with John Parish were played—understandably, as this is the tour for A Woman a Man Walked By—and though this was somewhat of a disappointment, it was wonderful to finally see her. Since I got the aforementioned album I’ve been loving it, but hadn’t realized just how… theatrical it is, for lack of a better word, and she played that aspect up on stage. One minute she’d be doing a spazzy dance and the next she was still, arms at her sides, doing delicate as the song demanded it. Doug and I disagreed on the lighting: it reminded him of our high school, and I thought it was perfectly intimate. The bare set and minimal lighting matched the rawness of the music for me. We were in the absolute last row, so the pictures are lacking, but as I haven’t used my actual camera in a while I’m still excited just to have something beyond iPhone quality.
