  1. Damn! that was great!

  2. What in the fuck, Annie? Look up the damn lyrics before you cover a Tom Waits song. Jesus. I am normally a St. Vincent fan, but that was just insulting.

  3. The sound quality was horrible, I could hardly hear the guitar. If ya want to hear a good cover of Tango til They’re Sore, look up Delta Spirit’s 4/14/11 Daytrotter session, ya can get it for free at
