Last night, I saw Rachael Sage at Club Passim, and I got to meet her after the show! She was so awesome and funny and cool and sweet. I told her how much I loved her music and that I was a huge fan and that I have all her CD's, and naturally, she was thrilled and so appreciative that someone loved her music as much as I did. Seriously, I can't figure out why she isn't famous! She should be as well-known as Ani DiFranco or Tori Amos, if not bigger. For that matter, I don't understand why people bother to listen to Ani and Tori, when Rachael Sage is out there! (No offense to anyone who likes them- I have at least one CD by each of them- but Rachael is just so much better!)

Her show was great. She has such an awesome stage presence and she was cracking jokes and faking various accents throughout her performance. And her voice is simply gorgeous live! She sang: Lonely Streets, Unbeauty, Bravedancing, Wildflower, Chandelier, Angel in My View, plus a debut of a brand new song she had just written. As soon as she played the opening chords of "Wildflower" (which is my favorite) I let out a very loud cheer. She stopped playing, looked in my direction, and said, "Mo-om! I told you to stop following me around!" The only disappointment about the show is that it wasn't longer. She was the opening act for some Scottish act I'd never heard of- Julie Fowlis, I think? I stayed for Julie's performance, but left after the first few songs- I wasn't crazy about her.

I still can't believe that I got to meet Rachael Sage; and how awesome she is in real life! I hope that I get to see her again sometime soon!
