PJ Harvey – When Under Ether (Live)

Here is the track White Chalk from the 2007 album of the same name recorded from a recent PJ Harvey concert on October 10th at the Beacon Theater in NYC. She played only 2 US shows in 2007 in support of her new album “White Chalk”. I am not very familiar with her work, but do realize she has many adherents including several friends of mine and probably most notably the late John Peel. I figured that someone out there in TSOI land might appreciate a live track since the tour was so limited.

I went to the show based on recommendations, so I decided to check her out not knowing what to expect. First off: No one adequately warned me about how insufferable her fan base is. By the end of the show, I was glad that I went to the sold-out show just because my attendance meant that I was likely taking the spot of a retardedly rabid PJ fan. To PJs credit, I liked the show in spite of the fairly annoying and spastic crowd, but she did indulged them a little much by talking to the audience. Note to PJ: if you have fans that are so enthusiastic they are stupid, don’t encourage them by talking to them; ignore them. They will still love you. Promise.
