A big week for Broken Social Scene fans: First you found medicine in “World Sick” and now, as we once mentioned in a footnote to an editorial, Feist performed a one-off at the Orpheum in Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics. The set included a new one, “He Was Free.” As a pre-teen she performed as a dancer in the opening ceremonies for the ’88 Calgary Winter Games. This is a more stripped-down showing because it’s not 1988. The camera operator has a few tilt issues, but the Uta Barth framing doesn’t mess with the sound.

The Olympics continue.

    As a video director, I’m impressed by your proper use of the term “Tilt”. Most people would say “pan down” which is incorrect and makes me shudder. Thanks! and to the guy behind the camera: “TILT DOWN!”

  3. Sounds great! and with the camera work, it looks like she’s grasping for air as she tries to keep her head above water.

    New album this year, please.

  5. Wow those steamy lights sound amazing.

    She is so talented. I want more.

  6. I was there. The Orpheum staff were constantly going after people who were filming so this was probably done on the down-low so they wouldn’t get caught.
