My Brightest Diamond @ Town Hall

Shara Worden and band (string section included), aka My Brightest Diamond, were such wonderful openers that I would have been happy to leave before headliner Sufjan even took the stage (I’m happy I didn’t though).

My Brightest Diamond played about a 45-minute set including an awesome full-band+special-guest-beatboxer cover of Prince’s When Doves Cry (she’s been known to do it solo too) (and she did it at Joe’s Pub – get the MP3).

Then Shara came back to join Sufjan and band as a butterfly for the rest of the show – so did her string section.

She was the only regular member of Sufjan’s 12-person band that I recognized. What happened to Katrina Kerns? Sufjan dedicated a song to her — one where she appeared in the video playing in the background — I think she was in the audience.

If you’re going to see Sufjan, get there early for Shara.

Get the MP3 of Shara’s hip-hop collaboration with Jedi Mind Trick.
