Heres the jaw-droppingly brilliant opening piece from the exceptionally-talented Brooklyn-based artist Marques Toliver's 4-song set , supporting Bat For Lashes that night.
Since I've seen 2 alternative titles to this song on at least a couple of YT vids, I'm hedging my bets by including both titles here (with the 'CanAan' title spelled in that uniquely letter-cased way). If someone could kindly point out which title is correct, I'll happily amend mine.
My apologies for the occasionally obtrusive whir of my new cams zoom mechanism, & other minor 'noises off' in this vid (which I believe thankfully isn't noticeable on my other Marques vid - which I've also just posted - nor on my BFL vids, though at least in the latter case this may well be cos BFL's louder / presumably more ambiently-amped music drowns it out). If I'd had time to conduct more thorough tests with my brand new cam before-hand, I'd have kept the zooming down to an absolute minimum here...
I'll also take this opportunity to apologise to Marques for only having recorded 2 of his 4 performed songs (since I was trying to save my one & only camera battery's power for BFL).
My final apology is for taking this long to upload these vids. This was partly cos it took me a couple of weeks just to work out how to upload vids to YouTube in glorious HD if they were shot in AVCHD Lite format (see my original non-HD version of BFL's 'Howl' which I've left up as justification for the delay waiting til I'd finally found a solution before posting all these). In fact I was originally going to delay uploading these til after I'd posted my last remaining footage from Natasha's final song of the night, her heart-warming cover of Peter Gabriel's uplifting 'Solsbury Hill' which I still need to edit, since I first had to switch memory cards mid song; only for my battery to finally give up the ghost less than a minute later. However, after being politely asked by Marques himself whether I intended posting my vids of his performances, I've finally & belatedly concluded I ought not to put off doing so any longer (regardless of my original aim to post all my BFL vids from this gig in consecutive performance sequence...)
