CD Release Concert Review - Joe's Pub, NYC

Asking around for reviews of the CD release party, I received the following detailed review, set list, and picture courtesy of Chris. He flew into the show, this is his review.

"Sarah and her band took the stage at about 7:30. I can't be sure of the names of the band members, but there was a drummer, guitarist, and an upright bass player. The guitarist snag backups on most songs and the rest of the band joined in on a song or two. The show was rather short, maybe just over an hour. She performed Lucky Me standing in front of the piano, sort of moving to the music similar to how she did in the video for that song. I was afraid it would be awkward for her to stand and sing a song without something to do with her hands, butshe pulled it off beautifully. Afterward, Sarah came out and talked with about 20 fans who had waited around for her, signed autographs,and was her charming self."

Set List:
1. California
2. Duncan
3. Notes From The Underground (correction)
4. No Place At All
5. Please Be Good To Me
6. Lucky Me (standing, no piano)
-- band leaves --
7. Pilgrim (solo)
8. Blue Parade (solo)
-- band returns --
9. Goodnight Trouble
10. Get Home
11. Looking For Someone
-- encore --
12. Universe (solo)
13. Parasol (with band)

Thanks again to Chris for providing that review. Other reports stated that it was a great show but they felt it just felt too short. A Canadian tour is set for May.
