(I feel like a broken record for saying this, but once again, I must apologize for the long absence - I was swallowed up by academia and work. This will more than likely happen again in the not-to-distant future, but I promise to actually make note of it before it happens)

Coming back from our unintentionally long hiatus, by request our first offering is a 2005 Cat Power performance from the now-shuttered West Hollywood outpost of The Knitting Factory. (and yes, it's pure coincidence that we are posting this just after she had announced that her new album Sun, her first album of original material in six years, would be released September 4th) It was a solo performance that was fairly typical of the the more "angsty" Chan Marshall period that ended up showcasing new material (at the time) and a few covers from the likes of the Rolling Stones, Moby, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, etc. The quality of the recording is not perfect by any means - due to the size of the sold-out crowd and the smallness of the venue there was some shuffling around, noise coming from the bar; however, it would definitely be considered a gem from the archives due to the rareness and uniqueness of the show itself.
