KT Tunstall (and her Wee Bastard)

I haven't yet blogged about KT Tunstall and I'm not sure why. Mike e-mailed me the clip he found on Google Video shortly before he blogged about it, and since then, I've become somewhat obsessed with the girl. Her music is catchy, she has a tremendous voice, and the tricks she does with her loop pedal (nicknamed "Wee Bastard," which is what she calls it whenever it breaks) are pretty clever. She makes me want to buy one.

I had the chance to stand front row for her show at the Mercury Lounge last month, which was fantastic. Unfortunately, Jess didn't get to go because I hesitated on purchasing tickets, and it was sold out at least 10 days in advance. I got a single ticket merely by luck. (Sorry, honey.) However, I can make up for my mistakes - that same night, I purchased tickets to see her at the Bowery Ballroom, where she's performing on March 2nd. Go see this show. Don't be a fool. It's going to be awesome. Buy your tickets here. Don't make me smack you.


In the meantime, here's what you should do.

I feel like she is this guy:

Would the music be as impressive if she didn't have that gimmick?

And I can't believe you left your wife to go to a concert? What happened, I thought Jess had a firm grip on your cajones?
