Tori Amos played a 50 minute set at La Zona Rosa last night, delighting hundreds of folks who recognize a rare opportunity to see a milf straddle a piano bench during SXSW. It was Tori’s first time taking part in the Austin festival, and she made the most of it by debuting three tunes from her forthcoming tenth LP Abnormally Attracted To Sin. The set was introduced by famed music blogger Perez Hilton, who revealed that Little Earthquakes made him the man he is today. Thanks for that, Little Earthquakes. As for the new material, Tori described “Mary Jane” as a true story about a boy who wanted permission from his mom to smoke up. “Lady In Blue” and “Curtain Call” sound prettier and more promising. Videos of all three after the jump.
