why get caught up in the idea of the “traditional gig” though when her performance and music is so good? She’s performing loads of amazing music she has composed for us and it’s her right to present it how she wants. Also, MASSEDUCTION pretty much sounds exactly how it was presented, a lot of “pre-composed, electronic” music with her playing and singing over the top of it. At best she’d have had someone pretending to be a DJ to give some sort of justice to the idea of “live music/performers” which if anything would be more distracting.
Interestingly, both times I’ve seen her live it’s been solo. The first time was supporting Grizzly Bear and it was completely different, just her sitting amongst a load of pedals and keys and her guitar being kinda earnest and shy. No one complained back then, however.
(BTW just playing devil’s advocate here, not attacking your opinion and right to it!)
