She observed on stage “ she likes bonding with people through sadness,” and played an assortment of her own sad, melodic songs to emphasize the point.

She started off strong with “Matchbox,” her “attempt to make a fun flirty song.” It was an  excellent, upbeat, perky and catchy way to start the show, which was opened by local musician Eric West.

She followed it up bey talking about an old diary and dedicating the next song to“Bad Poetry” to any 23-year-olds in the audience, and noted she has been playing with Bears of Hazenmore, observing, “ I finally found someone to play my sad songs with me” and joked the Owl was the only  venue she’s played to meet her rider— having lamps on stage.

 In between amusing stream of consciousness rants, she played some new material, featuring heartfelt lyrics, mournful melodies and multi-note vocal runs.

 A new one called “Spinning, Swirling and Stumbling in Your Streets,” which she wrote in a repurposed church was a highlight of her set.

 A older song “Deer Head” about wishing she was a taxidermied deer‘s head,” was another highlight.
 She played solo, accompanying herself on electric guitar, playing  alternative pop, rock and a touch of folk. the audience sat listening intently to her throughout.
