Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn tonight @ The Fold in Bootleg Theater, Hollywood, California:

I will venture into the dark and drunken streets of the Silverlake district of L.A. tonight to see a rare live performance of Mirah at the Bootleg Theater. Iím taking my camera and my pencil and plan on producing both a video for YouTube and a review for this forum. I love my camera and my pencil because sometimes they are a great excuse to get out of my comfort zone and do something I might not normally do if I didnít happen to have a camera or a pencil in my hand.

I innocently stumbled upon the music of Mirah one dark December morning a little over four years ago. She lives in San Francisco or a small town in Washington. No one seems to know for sure. It doesnít really matter. In 2006 Mirah had just released a new album on K Records called ďjoyride: remixes.Ē My favorite song is ďLa Familia.Ē

Mirah has a brand new album now called ď(a)speraĒ Iím sorry to report itís been really hard to find a copy of it. I havenít heard a note of "(a)spera" yet. I read the new album is a departure for her, something different. Mirah works solo a lot; perhaps tonight will be with a band.

I hope this doesnít sound like a gross generalization, but Mirahís small and adoring worldwide audience is made up mostly of young women (she is openly gay), so Iím a little apprehensive that my presence there tonight will not go unnoticed. Iím willing to wager whatever you want to wager that thereís not going to be too many tall bi-speckled men with grey mustaches and an annoying touch of gout attending tonightís Mirah show.

Itís been raining.

I hope it doesnít rain tonight.

Someone stole my umbrella and used it in the commission of a crime. Police tell me I canít get it back until after the trial. They donít know when the trial will be. In the meantime, I just sleep a lot and woolgather and listen to the sound of the rain.

I'm hooked. When you write your review, post it here. Also, post your youtube video here for us!

After you upload your video to youtube, cut the embed code (NOT the URL 'cause it won't work) and paste it in the body of your original submission.

Then, everyone can access your video through the pages of litdotorg.
