Amazing Grace

She performed at the Hollywood Bowl last night and I missed it. I'd known about the show for months but completely forgot until my friend called to let me know she was stuck in Highland traffic due to her performance.

I can't even begin to articulate what a huge inspiration Grace has been for me over the years. She hands down has the most vicious style I have ever seen in any artist of my time.

(V Magazine)

I'm devastated that I missed her. A close friend tells me she'll be back and that this was a sort of mini teaser tour. I certainly hope so because judging by photos and write up's, it was spectacular.

And this is why I fucking LOVE youtube. I know it pales in comparison to the real thing, but at least I can live vicariously through the audiences' shitty camera phone clips.

Her opening song "This is the Life" was performed completely covered in a silver lame sheath only to reveal her INSANE AMAZING zebra-like ensemble at 4:50. 

And altough the sound is shit, cover of Roxy Musics "Love is the Drug" is brilliant.


Philip Treacy and Eiko Ishioka KILLED IT with the hats and costumes. I can't even get into my undying love for both Philip and Eiko's work right now, let alone the reality that Grace Fucking Jones rocked them both for her entire tour. What a dream!
