Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions Concert
October 5, 2009
Lakeshore Theater, Chicago, IL
Video recording by me
Audio recording by shalloboi, you can visit his blog/site at:
Notes: The audio during the "entrance" of the band is from my camera. The background music that plays during this is by Alice Coltrane, entitled Shiva-Loka. The higher quality audio recording kicks in right before "Blanchard." After "For the Rest of Your Life," Hope's "bouncer" approaches me and tells me that I have to put away my camera so the last two songs are audio only, with a loop of the darkened stage playing on the screen.
Thinking Like That
There's a Willow
Around My Smile
For the Rest of Your Life
Satellite (audio only)
Feeling of Gaze (audio only)
Prior to this, Hope had not toured in over 7 years so I not only attended this show, but the prior night's show at the RIverside Theater in Milwaukee, WI. Despite the flack she got in many cities during the tour for her "outbursts", I was enthralled by her and the band and I can only hope it won't be another 7 years before we get to see her on the stage again. So I decided to share this with the world so that those who missed out can somewhat experience what I experienced.
Sadly this was one of the last shows ever played at this venue - the Lakeshore Theater closed in April 2010.
