Sara Lov 2/12/11 - Bootleg Theater, Los Angeles, CA.

Last Saturday, Sara Lov held a pre-Valentine's Day show/release party for her new covers album I Already Love You at the Bootleg Theater in Los Angeles. Held in the actual "theater" part of the venue (most concerts are in the front area), the elevated seating and flat stage gave the performance a sort of Sessions at West 54th sort of feel, and also featured cupcakes and handmade wooden Valentine's (given away with cd/t-shirt purchase) We of course are no strangers to Sara Lov, having featured an older acoustic performance, a full-band outing at the Hotel Cafe, and last year's show at the El Rey Theatre.
The setlist for tonight's show was cleverly split in two - the first half concentrated on covers and the second on Ms. Lov's own material (from her debut LP Seasoned Eyes Were Beaming)The covers were an interesting selection, running the gamut from Evanescence's "Sally Song"* (which is not on the aforementioned cover's album, yet played as a tribute to a friend) to The Magnetic Field's "Papa Was A Rodeo" to Ron Sexsmith's "Just My Heart Talkin'" to The Smith's "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out" (which was previewed at her El Rey show last year) to the 1980's classic Thompson Twins anthem "Hold Me Now." This was a wonderful show, and came out pretty good - a must have for all Sara Lov fans.
*technically it's called Sally's Song, but since it was Sally Song on the setlist, I'm going with that.
