Fiona Apple 07/17/1012 Midland Theater, KCMO
Fiona Apple played Kansas City on her new tour supporting her new album with a name so long I couldn't remember it if you asked. It was an almost full venue with a lot of women and a lot of true fans who knew the songs and sang along.
Fiona herself looks like she could put on a few pounds, cheeks are sunken and way too skinny. Still her voice sounded as good as always. She danced around, played some drums and had little interaction with the crowd over her 90 minute set.
The best thing to me about the show was her drummer Amy Wood. She kept a great beat and was quite impressive in her small kit she played. Amy is from LA and plays with The Donnies and The Amys as well as The Broken Remotes. Check out her stuff for sure - I bet she will be a top drummer.
A show well worth seeing as this tour will cross over the whole US.
