Four words: I LOVE TORI AMOS.
Ever since "Little Earthquakes" was released in 1992 I've been worshipping at the altar that is her music.
Another glorious day in the history of Tori's career was on January 22, 1996. This is when her 18-song album "Boys for Pele" was released and it's been a favorite ever since.
That brings us to tonight. Local act The Children of Trees, who I know absolutely nothing about, will be performing the album in its entiretly as part of the Cover to Cover series at The Big Easy in Portland. bigeasyportland.com It's a 21-plus affair that kicks off at 9 p.m.
It takes a lot for me to go out on a Tuesday night. But I'm going to rally like the champ I know I can be. Maybe I'll see you there?
Here's a handful of carefully selected clips of songs from "Boys For Pele" to put you in the mood.
Take it away, Tori!
"Caught a Lite Sneeze"
"In the Springtime of His Voodoo"
"Putting the Damage On"
Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
