Kimya Dawson: September 18, 2019 Market Hotel

September 25, 2019

Its hard for me to believe its been almost twelve years since we last saw Kimya Dawson live. Those two shows in 2008 at tiny Southpaw, and then later at a much larger Webster Hall straddled the time period when Kimya’s star rose dramatically due to her exposure in the Academy Award nominated film Juno, which included her performance at the Oscars.

We noted back then that fame hadn’t at all changed the authenticity of this unique performer and that remains correct today. She remains a person whose observational songwriting skills convey an understanding of the variety of emotions of the human condition — humor, love, anger, sadness, and most importantly a sense of community. This concert at Market Hotel covered much of her classic material and consequently many of those emotions.

This set was recorded by house FOH Joe onto a thumb drive through the soundboard’s internal recording device. Except for a low guitar level in the first song, the sound is superb. Enjoy!
