A Dyke About Town: The amazing Lucy Wainwright Roche

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Lucy Wainwright Roche
Cuteness turned Mercy on to Lucy Wainwright Roche, but couldn't join her at the Triple Door on March 14, so Reality did.

The opening act was the folk band Local Strangers. Aubrey Zoli had a strong voice. Matt Hart played a nice guitar. High points were 'I'll Drift Away,' 'I'm Haunted by Ghosts,' and 'Letter to My Mother.' They are working on a full-length CD.

Singer/songwriter Roche took the stage with her fantastic voice. Mercy liked the lyrics of her ballads. Reality found her melodies pleasing.

Lucy joked that she was nervous because she was wearing a shirt with a button that was about to open. Reality enjoyed her sense of humor.

She opened with 'I Met Her in a Kingstown Bar,' an original. 'Statesville' was another song by Roche. 'Deliver Me to the Next Best Western' was by Richard Shindell. 'We Fell in Love, I Knew It Had to End' was another song by Roche.

She had Matt and Aubrey come back for 'We Took What We Had and Ripped It Apart.' They sang nice harmonies.

Lucy told a story about driving to Nashville and being so tired she went straight to bed, leaving her guitar, 1,000 copies of her CD, and the keys in the car. Someone broke in and spilled her water, but cleaned it up and didn't steal anything.

Rachel Flotard came to the stage. The two singers had met when they sang backup for Neko Case on Letterman. Rachel had a vital voice. They sang 'Hungry Heart.'

Roche sang a song by her aunt, Terre Roche, called 'It Runs in the Family.' She wrote 'Open Season' after making a trip to Coney Island.

Lucy said her brother, Rufus Wainwright, is a musician. When he goes offstage at the end of the concert, he counts an incredible amount of time before he will come back for an encore. She doesn't have the courage to do that. Her encore was the sweet 'Here I am in Kingston Again.'

Renee Fleming
Mercy took Cuteness to see Renee Fleming, singing with the Seattle Symphony at Benaroya Hall on March 16, for Cuteness' birthday. Mercy likes to call Renee Fleming 'Peggy Fleming.'

Cuteness said Fleming has a spectacular voice. Mercy agreed, as did the audience, which gave her four standing ovations. Mercy's favorites were Leonard Cohen's song 'Hallelujah,' and Ricky Ian Gordon's 'Night Flight to San Francisco.' Cuteness' were Franz Lehar's 'Vilja Lied' and Erich Korngold's 'Marietta's Lied.' They loved the final encore, 'Il Mio Caro Bambino,' which they had used for their wedding.

Chano Dominguez
Mercy and Cuteness are really looking forward to seeing Chano Dominguez at Jazz Alley. Band members are Ben Street (bass), Blas Cordoba (vocals/percussion), and Dafnis Prieto (drums). Dominguez is a Latin jazz, flamenco, and post-bop flamenco pianist. He started in the rock group CAI before moving on to jazz.

They are touring in support of his new CD, Flamenco Sketches. They will be there March 27 and 28.
