"Cat Power is, like, SO sold out it's not funny."

A lot of people here in NYC are fighting bouts of insomnia and have learned that Cat Power live are a surefire way to put you to sleep! Doctor approved!

Agreed. Don't bother. I saw her after 'Moon Pix' and it was one of the worst shows I've ever attended. She really makes it obvious that she hates playing live. Maybe she's changed since then.

Sorry, I forgot to give you advice. Have you tried New York's Craigslist? (nyc.craigslist.org) A good non-profit bulletin board site for anything you can think of. They've got a whole section for people selling tickets to shows, and a whole section for people who need tickets to shows. And they strongly discourage scalping, so the prices are usually decent.

Yea Geeta, ditto Yance. Sold out or Sell out? Cat's not only a miserable performer, she's becoming more then a trite arrogant. First she turns on herself, then her audience. This is just deplorable. Thanks for nothing.

LiveBuyer beware!

Interesting Google on the hidden Cat Power/Phish connection!

Trying to Fill the Void When the Monoculture Skips a Beat By SHAILA K. DEWAN FOR THE NYT 10/17/00

Among the fauna to be found clustered around the box office at certain rock concerts there are subtle distinctions. And last night, outside the Beacon Theater on the Upper West Side, where Phil Lesh, the former Grateful Dead bassist, was playing, an expert would have been able to discern an uptick in one variety of tousle-headed, bead- hawking, parking-lot dweller: the Phishhead.

That's because last week, Phish, the Vermont jam rock band that more than any other took over the spiritual mantle of the Grateful Dead, abruptly began a hiatus of undetermined length. Their final concert, at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Calif., was on Oct. 7. After that, where was a fan to go?

The Phishheads in evidence last night were caught between disappointment and loyalty. "They've been working hard for a long time," said Robert Landry, 22, who had come from Kittery, Me., and decided to follow part of Mr. Lesh's tour. "So they're definitely entitled to a break."

By and large, the hippie-inflected fans are not inclined to vitriol. Dancing and sharing, especially in the form of bootlegged tapes, are encouraged by the band. But those who had spent the last one, three or five New Year's Eves at a Phish concert seemed somewhat lost (the band is expected to take at least a year off). Was there now a void in their lives?

"It hasn't set in yet," said Joel Sandler, 22, of Philadelphia, who said he was "a bum," but not proud of it. Noah Axe, 19 and, like both the band and his friend Mr. Sandler, on something of a hiatus, played it a little cooler. "Phish isn't the only band that Phish fans listen to," he said. He was thinking of checking out Cat Power. In a telephone interview with Cat Power, Ms Power stated : "If they don't pay they're not getting in, you cant pay the landlord by holding a finger up in the air." "We dont want them and we don't need them." "Our shows are already sold out". "Let them go follow Marianne Nowottny, she could use an audience....."
