Cat Power/Nico Turner 

When: Wed., Nov. 20, 6:45 & 10 p.m. 2013
Price: $25 ADV, $28 DOS
Shortly after last year's Billboard Top 10 album Sun, Cat Power (the musical alias for singer-songwriter Chan Marshall) found herself in the hospital. If that wasn't enough, financial issues later forced Marshall into bankruptcy. No longer able to afford touring with a large band, this year's tour consists of more intimate solo performances. In practice, this falls in line with her recent album Sun, which she recorded almost entirely by herself. A fairly large departure for her, the majority of Sun's interesting textures and heavier rhythms come from electronic sources. Tracks like "Ruin" and "Real Life" explore new territory by means of heavier drums and buzzing synths never heard before in a Cat Power album. With Marshall only using piano and guitar on this tour, the majority of the set will probably sound more like alternate takes than exact album reproductions, though replacing synthesizers and drums for an intimate emotional experience with an indie rock legend is more than enough compensation.
