Scout Time

Because I saw Scout Niblett at Cafe Nine last night and she was damn great, I thought I'd post a little video on this here blog. This was recorded last year in Minneapolis. This is her doing a cover of "Just What I Needed."

Four down, three to go.

I'm glad you enjoyed the show, and I've always respected your opinions, but...that video is probably not going to win over the uninitiated to Ms. Niblett.

The high pitched wailing through gritted teeth and tousled locks may be coffee house cool, but for someone who's just come off an 11 hour shift, it just comes off as pretentious wailing. If she had on that swan dress, I would've sworn it was Bjork.

Just because you can can give what YOU think is a funky spin to a fairly classic pop song doesn't mean that you should.

I know, I know - I'm a closed minded crank. If you say "damn great," I'll take your word for it. Well, I'm off to have a Closed Minded Crank Ale, and wind down.

Adios, amigo.
