Ship to shore

Angela Desveaux has made several visits to the city since I first saw her performing as part of the Sonny Best Band at Bluesfest some four years ago. Since then she's released a couple of well-released solo albums that seem to be treading the same path taken by Neko Case away from to someplace else - in her case somewhere a bit more rock. She doesn't have Neko's pipes, but who does? Nonetheless she's a good singer and I like her songwriting too. Her latest album is Angela Desveaux and The Mighty Ship, and that name seems to have attached itself to her backing band as well.

Ms. Desveaux.

Last time I saw Angela Desveaux on stage, Eric Digras was there too.

The whole lot - including Snailhouse supremo Mike Feuerstack and drummer Gilles Castilloux, who produced her album and is also her significant other.

Mike sings! He covered the microphone with a glove since it was shocking him. "I don't want to be a prima donnas, but I also don't want to die tonight."

More Angela!

And so on!

And that's all, since I didn't take many photos of this set and there were loads of duds. She's off for a whirlwind European tour next month.
