Regina Spektor . net

It's a long way to the house of Fitzcarraldo

If you had consulted your srg-to-English dictionaries, you would know that "this weekend" in fact means "6 or more weeks from now" (duh!). Anyway, here are two shows for you (some of these individual tracks were posted previously).

The marathon set from Bowery Ballroom last year features, among other things, a rare performance of Rejazz and the resurrection of the long-dormant Hotel Song, which has since evolved into a set-closing rocker.

The Housing Works show, which took place the night before a Tonic gig (recorded by Crimson and available for download here) , includes the debut performance of Blue Lips, the first attempt at the piano-less Ghost of Corporate Future, and the first & only performance, as far as I know, of the disturbing & awesome Long Brown Hair. Regina previously played the Live from Home series ca. January 2003, but I don't think any recording has surfaced.

I also had the distinct pleasure of attending the Halloween night record release party for Nellie McKay's long-delayed Pretty Little Head (buy it!); muchas thank-you's to the guys at NellieMcKay.org (now that's how you design a fansite).

thanks, srg!

honestly, what would we do without you?

my offer still stands, by the way. about working with you on a redesign for your site. if you want to do one, and if you want my help. i don't want to overstep any boundaries, and i know i'm sort of an overacheiver, but i'd love to play some minor role in rs.net because it's so important to the regina fan community at large!
