    Rachael Yamagata and Her Philly Residency

    After being our radio guest on The Time Machine a few weeks ago and as her upcoming album is getting the final touches before it is released, singer-songwriter Rachael Yamagata drops by with an update on her Philadelphia shows. Her Philly residency began this past Tuesday, July 17th at Johnny Brenda's with support from Birdie Busch. Earlier she shared, "We'll be switching up the line ups, changing some old tunes, premiering some new ones and basically having a grand ole time getting back into the live show mode. I've always looked at residencies as a time to experiment and tell stories in an intimate setting so come on out. Great support acts will be joining us – all from the area. It will never be the same show twice so whether you are a fan of the full band rock show, the acoustic duos, strings, or just me on a piano – we'll do it all." Here you go:

    Residency 2

    Hi Everybody!!

    You made the other night so wonderful - a beautiful crowd and such a very nice welcome to the city of brotherly love. We had a blast and all the new players were, dare I say it, psyched.

    In case you missed it - we rocked out a bit to some new songs and then tried to regain composure (ok - it was ME trying to regain composure) after random hilarity and then plunge into some heartwrenchers...the ENTIRE crowd sang "Reason Why" at the end and blew my mind - if only I'd had you in the studio when we recorded that song.

    SO - to give you returning fans something new and satisfy my desire to let the darker side shine - we will be STRIPPING DOWN for show - I'm not speaking of the band in their boxers, however I do know that would be dark...very dark. I AM talking bout giving some acoustics to those rock god electric playing dudes and adding some stellar cello (she's hot btw/ colette get your arse down here@!), cahoun and tribal kit versus big ole drums and if I don't think my wurlitzer will break on the ride over - I may even switch to that.

    I'm going to dig up some of those songs I never play and learn to play them again. this will require a hushed audience and a box of tissues so if you make noise we WILL be armed with water guns and we are not afraid to use them. If we suck, we will pass them to the audience and you have full permission to open fire on...well, everyone but me. It would bring too many memories back to my former playing days in college when an audience frat boy lobbed beer repeatedly on my white shirted self as the band just laughed and laughed and laughed...thank god for security.

    SO, come on out again and we'll stir up trouble. I LOVE you all and thank you again for being the best fans a gal could ever hope to have.
