Damien Rice in Austin

Last Wednesday evening, Damien Rice came and played in the Bass Concert Hall in Austin. The show is one of the best shows I have ever been to. I went to Jimmy Buffett in Houston at Minute Made Park two weeks ago, and the show was great but was no where near as intimate at the Damien Rice show. The stage was full of candles with his piano in the middle and was just gorgeous. He began the show behind a curtain kind of thing, playing his recent hit song ‘9 Crimes’ on the piano as a solo, which was brilliant, and continued to give a good mix of his new CD and his old CD throughout the show in order to keep the audience on its toes. The acoustics in Bass were perfect for his voice and if anyone has the opportunity to see him in his tour in performing arts centers throughout the nation, I suggest you go, you won’t regret it!
