I didn't catch her set. A co-worker did, and he's still blown away,
almost a year later. I have to admit it's taking me a while to warm
up to her. The Goth/Cleopatra makeup does nothing for me and all the
hype about her, from music reviews to tabloids, just biases me
against her. Having said that, I've heard a little of her singing
but not much, and I'm still on the fence.
