Last week Tom and I headed to Union Transfer in Philadelphia to see Mazzy Star. I spent countless hours in my late teens and early twenties listening to Hope Sandoval's voice and tambourine. I never had the chance to see them live back then so I was really excited to finally experience some of my favorite songs in a live setting. While I am glad that we went, I have to say that the show overall was a bit of a letdown. After all these years, the band really had no stage presence and the performance seemed a bit half-hearted. I'd read that Hope tends to be really shy onstage and she lived up that, barely lifting her head and never addressing the crowd. I was hoping for more, but I am happy that I can checking seeing Mazzy Star live off of my list.
