Once I wanted to be the greatest
No wind or waterfall could stall me
Haven't we all felt like the person in this Cat Power song? The assurance. The confidence. The belief that it was all possible.
I've always wanted to hear this one live, so I'm hoping she decides to dust it off next weekend at LouFest. Cat Power (or, Chan Marshall, whatever you want to call her) hasn't been performing live much in the past year, and LouFest will be your only chance in 2011 to catch her at a festival setting in the U.S. She wasn't at Bonnaroo. She wasn't at Coachella. She wasn't at Lolla. But, she will be at Forest Park on Sunday, the 28th. Get those tickets now, peeps.
Dream scenario: she starts playing this as the sun starts to set. Wouldn't that be the greatest?
