there are few musicians that provoke the kind of intense visceral response in me the way rufus wainwright does. at the risk of sounding all squishy, he vibrates my soul somehow. i weep when he holds his voice in a certain pitch, and weep again with his beautiful piano chord transitions. he is steeped in crazy-good talent. i've been revering this man since his first album eleven years ago, and my gut continues to flex when i hear him perform anything - new or old. that said, i guess i'm in for quite an emotional workout tonight :) benaroya hall, seattle 7:30.
grateful today for: rufus wainwright, music that makes me feel alive, and being up to going to my first concert in over a year.
