Cloaca Melodia

My life in concerts, by Mike Sauter.


Nicole Atkins, Bindley Hardware Co.

South Park Amphitheater, South Park Township, PA Quite a lovely night of music. Although it had rained several times earlier in the day, the skies had cleared and conditions were perfect for some outdoor music. Nicole had visited WYEP earlier that day, and we had a fun time on the air.

Her performance at South Park was terrific, and the band she is touring with is top-notch.

Nicole and the band had worked up a cover of Bowie's "Moonage Daydream" after I told her that the day of her Pittsburgh visit was the 45th anniversary of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, and she gave me a shout-out from the stage when introducing the song.

(After the show, she told me that the band was going to keep it in their setlist for the following night at the Mountain Jam festival. I told her she should keep it the repertoire for her entire tour, since they totally nail it, but since she has a month-long break before her next concert, I don't even know if she'll be heading out with the same group of musicians.)
