Regina Spektor Live



Regina Spektor The Paradise Lounge Boston, MA 4.02.05

I'm still working on my end of the year lists, immersed in your geekdom right now. It seemed like a good time to finally put up this live show from a possible contender to make the Top 10 album list, Regina Spektor. Her most recent one, Begin To Hope, gets better with each listen, especially as the weather gets colder and you just want to stay in and read and be melancholy. Can I just say that I am totally in love with Spektor and her music and that you need to buy her two albums immediately as they are some of the most unique, beautiful music being made today? Here's a chance to catch her in a live show from early last year, when she was still touring in support of her debut album, Soviet Kitsch, although there are some tracks from the new album as well. It's a great chance to these songs in the live setting, makes me wish that I had caught her playing small venues as opposed to the Electric Factory (the cavern-like venue in Philadelphia).

Setlist is in the comments. Leave some comments if people are feeling this, as I have a few other shows that I can point up at some point. Buy her albums first, support my girl.

I am back in Philly for a few days right now for family issues, a fitting end to this crappy year. 2007, bring it out bring it out!

Actually, I already have her albums and have been waiting for a concert in France (where I live) for quite a long time. Thanks a lot for posting this - I'm downloading it right now, don't know yet if I will listen to it immediately or wait until after the show in February. Maybe I want to witness the live experience first and listen to this afterwards, I don't know... I don't know if I can wait that long! Thanks a lot.

I'm glad to see that someone else has the same feelings about this "angel of a voice."

She is amazing and I have bought her newest album. Hope to see her soon in the US.
