The hardest part of lovin' is leavin'
I've just returned from seeing Alison Moorer at Nu Music Night at the Horseshoe Tavern. It was a great set but incredibly, unbelievably short. As in, less than 45 minutes long short. I'd say Alabama Song was the highlight of the set, but there was lots of good stuff (as a percentage anyway, there was, as I've noted, a shortage of stuff overall).
I'm pleased as hell that she made it up to Toronto, but I have to wonder why she bothered. Nu Music Night pays diddly squat, she wasn't able to get any merch across the border (so I couldn't buy the new CD, damnit) and she wasn't even the headlining act at a no cover night (Marah was to follow but I didn't stay for that). What's the payback on a gig like this?
