This was at the Blue Cat Cafe which I was delighted to say have a "no covers" policy, such is their commitment to the fostering of new music. Opening the show was the fantastic Darien Crossley all the way from Asheville, North Carolina. Sweet (and just occasionally bitter!) songs, beautifully sung and played. I must say during Darien's mine and Tiki's performances, that again the audience were really wonderful, hanging on to every note played or sung, you could hear a pin drop in the quiet moments and with great applause at the end of each song.
Tiki was of course, absolutely sensational again. I urge you to buy her album, you won't be dissapointed! I'm just sorry I had to go before the end to leave for the train.
