Well, what can I say? Shara Worden is an amazing, energetic ball of bliss. Last night at the Blender Theater she rocked the stage with her live orchestra and despite some microphone problems the show went great. Dressed in black and white circus-styled clothes and white pointy birthday hats, which she passed out to the people by the stage, she belted out the first song of the night, “Inside a Boy.” Next came the throaty “Black & Costaud.” Both these songs are off her new album, A Thousand Shark’s Teeth, which I reviewed for the NY Press. You can also check out a profile I did of Worden for the Brooklyn Paper a few months back.
Anyway, Worden played mostly songs from her new album but did sing a few from her first record including, “Golden Star” and “Dragonfly.” She also did a slow and girlie version of Prince’s “When the Doves Cry.” I took a video of her singing “Bass Player” but for some reason I am having a hard time getting it off of the computer, so it will have to come later. And to any of you that missed the show, your loss! My Brightest Diamond just gets better and better.
