I saw Antony and the Johnsons as the guest of their sound guy, David Schnirman (from whose defunct e-mail address I still occasionally receive spam). It was a snowy night and I got to watch the show from the sound booth which was amazing because one of the main reasons I don't love seeing music live is that I'm a short person and I can never quite see. So to be able to see and hear, but not be too close was pretty amazing. I didn't know Antony and the Johnsons at all but my socks were knocked off. Lou Reed was there that night too.
Anyway, I can't quite put my finger on one reason this is the song of the week - I think it's a bunch of tiny things that all add up. Hope you enjoy!
