What I saw: Tune-Yards

Last week Lisa and I went to see Tune-Yards at the Music Hall of Williamsburg.  I bought our tickets a few months ago as I knew the show would sell out quickly.  It was an awesome show.  I got chills multiple times during the set.  The joy Merrill had during her performance was palpable.  She creates loops upon loops upon loops of beats and vocals right on the spot and often performed her songs with nothing more than two floor toms, her voice, and a ukulele.  You can learn more about Tune-Yards here.  This is the only video I was able to get right at the beginning of her set.  Do yourself a favor and go see them live.  The video does not at all do her justice.
