But even though I didn't know most of the songs they played last night, each song was amazing and the band completely rocked the house! Here are some of the songs from last night's set:
Only Happy When It Rains
Not My Idea
A Stroke of Luck (supposedly the first song she ever wrote!)
They also played a four-song encore (!), which included Kick My Ass, which Shirley dedicated to all of their lost loved ones. So we got to hear SO much music by the time the show was over! We certainly got our money's worth!
Here are some of my favorite songs from their "Bleed Like Me" album:
Why Do You Love Me
Boys Wanna Fight
What an amazing show! No wonder this band has been able to last so long (well, with a hiatus or two in between). Even at almost 50 (!) years old, Shirley is an incredible performer, and the rest of the band can keep up with her energy. I'm not sure if I'll have another opportunity to see them perform again (Shirley had a morbid moment in the middle of the show talking about death). I'm just glad I got to take advantage of their show right here in DC!
(P.S. - Read this DCist article about their performance the night before).
