Antony and the Johnsons!

I saw Antony and the Johnsons at Town Hall last night! He was AMAZING.

So beautiful. Someone offering up their soul. Such an unusual, unworldly voice that conveys so much anguished compassion.

He is an extraordinary performer, moves easily between casual repartee with the audience and these haunting, emotional, draining pieces.

I most enjoyed hearing the songs I am familiar with from my CDs. I guess that's normal. I forgot the name of the song that was most powerfully rendered. But in addition to it, My Sister, and Cripple and the Starfish were my favorites.
