Anaïs Mitchell at the Wildwood Hotel

This was so good. My friend Peter did the artwork for Anais' Hadestown album. Here she is playing down the road from me, at a cool and funky venue. I got to chat with Anaïs about Peter, and bought the new album. It was a moving and elegant show, in front of about 40 people at the Wildwood Hotel.

I love how people would quiet down and listen as Anaïs got into each song. This is Neil Young's "For the Turnstiles," and "Goodnight Irene," the encore songs. The Nex and the vintage Zeiss lens did a good job with the low light.

Katie at the Wildwood offers a room for a night or two, in exchange for a set in the bar. Coming through Portland? Want a day off from the road? Give her a call.
