fiona apple - 12/9/05 @ tower theater - upper darby, PA

I attended two Fiona Apple shows at the Tower on December 8 & 9, 2005. I had fantastic seats for both shows (both singles). I was 11th row but kinda way stage left the first night, and 8th row center for night #2. The shows were fantastic; she's a very intense performer. However, the setlist for both nights (and her entire tour) were exactly the same, song-for-song. Lots of the ones she did do were faves of mine, though.

I took my camera in for the 2nd show only, because I knew after the first that they weren't patting people down. It's the first "big" concert I'd ever considered sneaking it into. It ain't cheap and I don't want anyone trying to mess with it if I get busted. Anyway... I figured I could stealth some decent shots in the 8th row with my zoom. I got some shots, but they all kinda suck. Still, interesting somewhat to see. I also got complete audio of "Get Him Back" and "Criminal" but that's another story.

?uestlove (Ahmir) from The Roots showed up to play on a couple songs (that's him with the afro on the kit) and that was really cool. He livened the show up a bit. He's from Philly and he played on a couple tunes on Fiona's new record. Right on.

These last 4 shots were all taken during the song "Extraordinary Machine" with David Garza on guitar (opening act) and Mike Elizondo on bass (Fiona's bassist and producer of her last record).
