Joan As A Policewoman in Tripod.

We went to see JAPW in Tripod last night, Great show! It was just Ms Joan Wasser, drummer Parker Kindred (great voice too), and Bass player Rainy Orteca, who also played support as Dead Air.

The first 45 minutes or so was slow and Torchy and built up to a big drumming crescendo with Furious. After that she stayed up and loud to the end. 
Joan broke her guitar at her Cork Gig the night before, and was having tuning problems with the replacement, this led to a lot of tuning pauses, with the audience calling out requests. 
She's very cool and had us all giggling, "Yes, Yes", she'd drawl, "I'll get to that" To be honest, I think the crowd was a bit shy...then someone called out "Are you going to Electric Picnic?" and she shouted "Yes Yes", and we all cheered.

It was a fun night, and we came home with a signed CD!
